**Best Organic Buttery Chardonnay** Staff pick

Certified organic. The Chardonnay is sourced from three plots within the Balmoral block at Nashdale, with volcanic, chocolate ferrosol soils at 880 meters on the northeast-facing slope of Mount Canobolas. At almost 30 years old, these are some of the oldest vines in the region.

The fruit was hand-picked in the last week of February, then whole-bunch pressed to French oak puncheons (500L) for primary fermentation. Byrne uses 50% low impact new oak—a very tight-grain, steam-bent barrel from the Mâconnais region of Burgundy—which helps lift and focus the fruit without adding overt flavour. After nine months in oak with monthly bâtonnage, the barrels were blended.

The aromas are filled with white florals, white stone fruits and wet stone minerality tied to a hint of reduction and nashi pear. The palate is chiselled and sinuous, pristine acidity slicing though the intense mid-palate concentration and opulence; the balance is pinpoint. A delicious cool-climate Chardonnay full of drive, tension, and focus.

Our notes

Lightly golden, instantly attractive mix of green melon, nectarine and hints of vanilla creme de patisserie. There is also a fresh, flinty element. In the mouth it's clean and precise with great weight and mouth-filling flavour. The balance between opulent fruit and fresh, green apple acidity is spot on—lovely full-flavoured Chardonnay.   Highly recommended.

Producers notes

We look to produce wines which express the high altitude, cool climate characteristics that are unique to the region of Orange. Wines that show an abundance of fruit, retain crunchy, mineral acidity and have a long, lingering palate is what we like to drink and aim to make.
