2019 Collector Wines Tiger Tiger Chardonnay
Region: Canberra District
Winemaker: Alex McKay
Vineyards are located between 610 and 760m altitude at the foothills of the Snowy Mountains in Tumbarumba, NSW. The Cool Climate sites offer exceptional conditions for growing Chardonnay. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and run to a mix of new and old French oak for fermentation. Each parcel underwent a full malolactic fermentation and was aged on lees before blending and bottling.
The wine is fresh with aromas of white flowers, grapefruit and flint. A changing and complex wine of depth and concentration that with time in the glass reveals lemon curd, brioche and spent matchsticks. The palate is focussed, mouth-filling and long. The wine will metamorphose and take on complexity with age.
Sommelier’s Recommendation: Aussie Chardonnay is leading the charge back onto the World Stage and our cool climate areas are the most exciting. Letting the perfectly ripened fruit shine and a deft touch of oak, this wine is yummy whilst showing many layers of complexity
