Over the last two or so years I’ve been really getting into new grape varieties, regions and producers. Thanks to some associations/contacts I’ve made, one of the best ‘finds’ for me has been the Orange region of New South Wales. Gee I’ve had some good wines from there and here’s another one, but this time, it’s from another new producer coupled with a favourite variety of mine.
What a marvellous introduction to this producer. It reeks of ‘quality everything’ on the nose and palate. Things get rolling with an immediate aromatic impact on the senses. This continues on the palate where there’s great fruit intensity, subtle texture, a delicate creaminess with fine yet vivacious acidity. There’s a lovely feel to this wine too which persists to the eminently long finish. A classy, cool climate Chardonnay.
