Grown in the Maragle Valley deep in the NSW Snowy Mountains, south-east of the township of Tumbarumba, the Maragle Valley is a sheltered valley environment, with suitably warm-ripening days and cold nights. Grapes are handpicked, whole-bunch pressed and with minimal settling, fermented in both medium-toast French oak barriques and stainless-steel fermenters. Matured for 6-months in oak with bi-weekly stirring of yeast lees sediments to improve texture. As fruit freshness is desired, MLF is not encouraged.
Pale straw with green hues. It is lively with citrus aromas hinting at mature lime and grapefruit. The palate is driven by a beautiful fresh acidity and delivers a texture driven very persistent finish. Over the next 24 months will develop into an outstanding example of Tumbarumba Chardonnay.
