Rowlee Wines [Orange, NSW], Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

This relatively new brand from the Samodol family [Mt Canobolas] has hit the market in a big way by being awarded 2 Gold medals & 3 Trophies at the recent Orange Wine Show & NSW Wine Awards.
It displays all the restrained yet generous cool climate varietal characteristics of melon & citrus.
The nutty, wild yeast characters combined with zingy natural acid and edgy minerality all enhance and reward the palate weight.
This wine will reward mid-term cellaring but is delivering very well at a primary level now.
Mine was enjoyed with a mushroom omelette.
Price: $40
