Palate Clean and lingering on the palate, yet round and textural whilst exhibiting a light frame supported by fine savoury tannins.
Food Pairing Game meats.
Cellaring 5-10 Years

Beechworth
With soils packed with minerals and a range of altitudes and terroir, Beechworth is situated on the continental side of the Victorian Alps, setting the scene for warm, sunny days as well as cool nights, which temper any heat and produce wine grapes with natural elegance.

Beechworth is home to some of the best Chardonnay produced in Australia, along with other cool-climate varietals like Pinot Noir. A focus on small batch production lends a boutique air to Beechworth with winemakers being hands-on when it comes to every aspect of their vines and wines.
