The McGuigan Cellar Select Chardonnay was sourced from the town of Tumbarumba located at the base of the Snowy Mountains in NSW. The growing season started slowly with the coolest spring on record only to be followed by the hottest summer on record. Relative to recent years the harvest was weeks behind and took place in early March.
The grapes were harvested in the cool of the night and transported to our Hunter Valley winery where they were crushed and pressed into stainless steel vats. The juice was transferred directly to new French oak barrels and fermented with yeast strain. The Hunter Valley wine was then held at cooler temperatures where components were selected, blended and clarified prior to bottling. This delivered a crisp and refreshing wine with a delicate palate and gooseberry driven aromas.
