Climbing Chardonnay, Orange Australia, Vintage 2006
High Elevation Estate. Our estate vineyards climb up the slopes of Mt. Canobolas (elev. 4,650 feet) in the heart of the winegrowing district of Orange and thrive in brilliant sunshine. These ideal growing conditions naturally reduce yields and allow Philip Shaw, our world-renowned winemaker to craft small lots of intensely flavoured and wonderfully balanced wines of exceptional quality. Estate-grown and crafted, our crisp, perfectly balanced Chardonnay thrives in its high altitude home and displays delicious butterscotch aromas and superb varietal purity. - Philip Shaw, Winemaker. Twice winner: International Winemaker of the Year. Alc 13.0% by vol. Wine of Australia.
