Nick Spencer describes this drop as "Tumbarumba in a bottle". A great example of the region's chardonnay, Nick believes that the 2018 vintage has produced some of the best fruit he has seen in the past decade. Vibrant green apple and white peach aromas linger on the nose, with slight crushed rock notes. Beautifully restrained power in the palate, subtle complexity and a devine length. Smashing drop!
The Tumbarumba Chardonnay is fermented entirely in Stainless steel. The wine displays citrus and grapefruit characters in spades. The palate is vibrant with an explosion of grapefruit and white peaches and has a fine backbone of acidity which keeps the wine fresh and crunchy.
The fruit is grown on the Maragle vineyard in the southern corner of Tumbarumba. The vineyard lies at 450m / asl on light decomposed granite soils.
The fruit was hand picked and lightly pressed to stainless steel foil fermentation. The wine then matured in this vessel for 10 months on gross lees prior to bottling.
Cracking Chardonnay and clearly one of Nick's best wines. This wine is one of our favourite Chardonnay's at the moment and we would recommend it without hesitation.
