Prior to the production of this wine, it was with some delight that we learned demand for a good Aussie Chardonnay was on the rise again… hopefully the start of something massive. The label reflects word-of-mouth with a bunch of hipster types sharing the news of "The Next Big Thing". This is a real vineyard find, proper stuff with bags of varietal appeal but a lovely texture too. Aussie chardonnay has made a strong comeback... and this is a cracking wine to start the revolution!
How it's made
Food Match​
 

The grapes are hand harvested from an old block on the Binder Family Barossa Vineyards. Small batches of Chardonnay are picked and pressed through a tank press with some skin contact. 25% is fermented in French puncheons and American hogsheads for six months, aged on lees then blended with the 75% unoaked juice, settled and bottled. Into the main Barossa blend a small component of Eden Valley Chardonnay is blended and the whole sees a tiny bit of secondary use oak for some fine structure.

Anything with chicken, pork, prawns, seafood… Brilliant as a quaffer or perfect with a lovingly cooked meal.

Tasting Notes​

With the faintest whiff of biscuity oak this bright, tangy Barossa Chardonnay is an absolute delight. It has that classical Barossa charm, elegance, poise, tang and naggingly more-ish elusive something-or-other which makes one wonder why there are not more Australian Chardonnay. The 2015 enjoys all of the notes above with added texture an breadth making this vintage food-ier still.
