Belgravia Wines The Apex Orange Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Belgravia's top dog Chardonnay, this is a serious, focused white from cool Orange built in the elegant and flinty style. Feed this 'real' Chardy to the 'Anything But Chardonnay' doubters and watch their heads spin...

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Bright green.

Nose: Subtle perfume of white stone fruit.

Palate: Flavours of citrus peel and white peaches combined with high levels of natural acidity and balance.

Belgravia Wines The Apex Orange Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; The Apex is the title given to the best wine produced each vintage: here it is a chardonnay that is both very subtle yet very complex; it is hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, the juice wild yeast-fermented in new French oak; that oak is part of the single stream of white peach, grapefruit and cashew flavours underpinned by citrussy acidity. The overall texture and balance are impeccable, so much so it's not easy to unbundle the wine.

Said to be made from a unique clone on the estate vineyard; whole bunch-pressed and wild yeast-fermented in new French oak; it has bright green colour, with white peach fruit the driver of its flavour; very good texture and structure.
