Chardonnay Cowra Beechworth Orange New South Wales
Enter Brokenwood's response to the modern day enthusiasm for finely structured Chardonnay with more balance, lower phenolics and less oak. A harmony of harvests from choice vineyards at Orange, Beechworth and Cowra, is essential to constructing a synergy that's greater than the sum of parts. Offering the splendid complexity achieved by a measure of wild yeast ferments and lees sediment battonage, its creamy mealyness makes Brokenwood the ideal accompaniement to west coast marron, spatchcock or bugs.
Pale yellow with hues of green. Plenty of tropical fruit to the bouquet, apple and stonefruits over a veil of background oak. Lees stirring bran meal characters add texture to the youthful palate, layered with fresh citrus and stone fruit flavours supported by perfect acidity. Refined finish on a generous length of fruit, a match to rich seafood recipes, pasta and white meats.
