Debut Chardonnay for Nick Spencer Wines.
Mixed citrus, apple in oatmeal dusted with cinnamon, whisper of fennel and flowers. Light bodied, delicate and fine, but flavoursome too, with more of that oatmeal in with crunchy white fruits and citrus. Brightly lit with pure acidity, gentle chalky texture, and a green olive and lime laced finish of impeccable length and precision. Gee, this is good. Scintillating Chardonnay.2018 - 2026+
Tasting Notes: Tumbarumba holds a very special place in my heart. The landscape is not only aesthetically beautiful but also produces some of the best Chardonnay in the world. The 2016 vintage marked my 10th year producing wine from Tumbarumba and it is in my opinion the best I have seen from this alpine region.
The wine is lively and bright with lovely citrus and stone fruit characters. There is an intensity and energy to the palate that is as much familiar with a young Riesling. The finish is bright, elegant, long and crunchy. This is Tumbarumba is a bottle.
Winemaking: Whole bunch pressed directly to old French barriques for fermentation by indigenous yeast. 10 month on lees in barrel, racked filtered to bottle with a small sulphur add at bottling.
