Tasting Note

Orange consistently produces world class chardonnay; the Orange terroir seems to draw out the best of the variety. It is a very versatile variety that expresses beautifully as a lightly wooded style or as a barrel fermented and lees aged wine which shows rich flavours and velvety mouth feel.

Tasting Notes

Variety: Chardonnay

Region: Orange, NSW Central Highlands

Winemaker’s Notes: Orange consistently produces world class chardonnay; the Orange terroir seems to draw out the best of the variety. It is a very versatile variety that expresses beautifully as a lightly wooded style or as a barrel fermented and lees aged wine which shows rich flavours and velvety mouth feel.

Winemaker: Gerald Naef

Colour: Pale straw.

Aroma: Rich varietal chardonnay aromas of peaches and cream, rock melon, cashews and creamy barrel aged lees characters.

Palate: Developed but fresh, smooth and well balanced with nothing obviously dominating the palate. This wine is fine in texture with apricot, white stone fruit and crisp apple flavours balanced by a little creamy lees. A multilayered cool climate style that is generous yet elegant with excellent structure and length.

Winemaking: This wine was fermented and aged on lees for 12 months in oak barrels.

Cellaring: The good natural acid levels allow the oak and fruit to integrate resulting in a scrumptious wine to be savoured. It is drinking well now and will become rounder and very scrumptious as it ages up to and well beyond 2027.
