Aged for 8 months in 25% premium new French barriques (medium toast), stirring the lees (bâtonnage) to take the wine to the next level. The high natural acidity of Tumbarumba fruit gives this wine a cellaring potential of 8-10 years. This is an outstanding wine, mixing old school chardonnay winemaking technique with new world fruit characters, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

About the wine

Tasting notes

The Pirouette – meaning spin, twirl, and swirl - is a complex chardonnay. The first aroma is the distinct struck match followed by aromas of ripe white nectarine, green melon, pear and buttered toast.Pair me with the classic French buttered Tarragon roast chicken and salad, or over ripe soft cheeses such as Brillat Savarin or triple cream brie.

The Grape

Chardonnay

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
