Chardonnay is the most planted white grape variety in the Orange region which is favoured for its high altitude cool climate. Situated approximately 270 km west of Sydney the topography and soils of the region are dominated by the extinct volcano Mt Canobolas. Soils in the central part of the region come from the basaltic lavas of the old volcano, and primarily consist of deep red to brown free draining clay loam soil.
After harvest the grapes were fermented in French oak puncheons and left on lees for 6 months.
The resulting wine has aromas of peach and white flowers. The generous palate is packed with ripe pears, lemon, green apple, vanilla, spice and a hint of minerality. Fresh and round with great body.
