Mount Tumbarumba Vineyard On the Fly Chardonnay 2016
Chardonnay may well prove to be the real hero variety of Tumbarumba. This beautiful wine from Mount Tumbarumba Vineyard won a gold medal in the 2017 Winewise Small Vigneron Awards, one of Australia’s most highly regarded wine competitions. Winemaker Alex McKay fermented and matured the wine in a combination of new and older French oak barrels. The result is a finely textured, full-bodied dry white with nectarine-like varietal flavour cut with the spicy, nutty character of oak.
