2015 Chardonnay

Price: $36

Tasting

Steve Morrison’s ‘Revee Estate’ vineyard is the source of our Tumbarumba Chardonnay. At 730 metres above sea level it is a seriously cool site. Perfect for elegant fine-boned Chardonnay.

Restrained citrus and white peach aromas. Tight and bright through the palate with a taut, mineral acid backbone.

12.5% Alc/Vol

Reviews

Tumbarumba is quietly amassing an army of quality chardonnay producers. Wonder what is going to happen next? So much potential. Hopefully not for plunder. Tim Kirk loves great chardonnay so this seems like an apt fit.

the wine gets some slide and juiciness

Flint and slate over green apple and citrussy scents. Also flinty in the palate, almost austere in scratchy mineral character and bristle of zesty acidity, but it has a comely lactic curl that settles in nicely. It’s a decidedly leaner style of chardonnay but born from a cool place and crisp fruit, or so it feels.

Time open and the wine gets some slide and juiciness. Finishes bone dry. I like it.

Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front

A stunning edition of this cool-climate chardonnay sourced from an elevated (730m) vineyard and even on the nose it oozes intensity and power. Smells of lemon curd, white peach and flinty, stony reductive notes and really cool, cucumber freshness.

A stunning edition of this cool-climate chardonnay

The palate has a wealth of flesh that is all wrapped together by well-paced crunchy acidity and the right phenolic presence, with the merest hint of toasty oak to close.

Everything is just right here; this is a wine that sits right in the leading edge of modern Australian cool-climate chardonnay. Superb. Drink now.
