About

A brave new project from winemaker Nick Spencer here, stepping away from the renowned Eden Road wines and on to his own endeavour. This is the first release of a Chardonnay under Nick's own eponymous label. The fruit comes from Tumbarumba. Nick has made Chardonnay from this region for a decade now, he believes that 2016 vintage has produced the best fruit he has seen. This doesn't have the flashy oak and sulphide aspects which often characterised his critically acclaimed Chardonnays at Eden Road, this is a gentler, more streamlined version of the variety which showcases the purity of fruit from this cool NSW region. "This is Tumbarumba in a bottle." - Nick Spencer

What it Tastes Like

Bright golden fruit only a touch of oak and subtle oatmeal notes. Touches of slate in this slipstream of Chardonnay fruit. It has a gentle mouthfeel, it's a calm wine with lovely minerality. Elegence is its middle name. It’s a Chardonnay that whispers where it’s from. Cool. Classy. Effortless and precise.
