About

Swinging Bridge is one of the leading producers in Orange.

They have built a formidable reputation for releasing top value for money cool climate wines, Chardonnay, arguably their best varietal.

This is their 2012 ‘G&A’ Blanc de Blancs. Made from some of their best Chardonnay fruit in the cool parts of their vineyard.

Tom Ward is a dab hand at this variety, and for a wine made to honour the matriarchs of his family, he has taken extra care with this great value release. This spent two and a half years on lees as the wine built texture and depth. It’s damn fine drinking.

The ‘G&A’ is beautifully presented and an absolute steal for lovers of leaner, more complex styles of bubbles.

Bring on the festive season!

What It Tastes Like

Virtually dry but the sweetness just takes the edge off. 4g of residual doesn’t sound like a lot but it just fills out the mid-palate a little. Smart choice. Great acid. Honeysuckle and brioche characters. Tight bead and nice mousse. A creaminess through the palate. Lime, citrus blossom, mandarins. A chalkiness too. All up, down right delicious.
