About

Collector, in only a short space of time, has developed an enviable reputation as one of the Canberra district's most consistently high-quality producers. One of the keys to Alex McKay's success has been to keep things small. He only produces tiny quantities of ultra-premium wine from Canberra and the surrounding areas. His Tiger Tiger is Tumbarumba Chardonnay at its most fierce. This is serious Chardonnay built for speed and agility. It carries the attributes of its namesake, it is muscular, lean and strikes with precision. James Halliday awarded the 2014 vintage 96 points and noted its "Rocket fuel power" . This is cool-climate Chardonnay with swagger.

What it Tastes Like

"I10V1 clone, the vineyard at 850m, hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, fermented in French oak (30% new) full mlf, matured for 11 months. Rocket fuel power; ultimate intensity and focus, mlf was clearly essential; unsweetened grapefruit and zest plus some white peach and nutty oak." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
