Rolls epically long, so perfect, so clean, so fine...
About The Wine
This cool climate Chardonnay from Josh Cooper is an absolute cracker.
Gently handled, as is Josh's way, the hand-picked fruit from this old vineyard in the Macedon Ranges was gently pressed for 5 hours then sent to mostly old oak to mature for 12 months on lees.
It's tightly wound, full of flavour and imbued with an electric personality.
This Chardonnay sings of its home, a cool site on Cambrian and granite soils. It's pure Chardonnay of pure class.
Great stuff from Josh and one of the most compelling Chardonnays you will see from a young Australian winemaker.
About Joshua Cooper
Joshua Cooper is the son of Nelly and Allan Cooper, the founders of the acclaimed Cobaw Ridge winery in the Macedon Ranges.
A young winemaker on the rise, Josh is working with fruit from outside the family plot to craft his own suite of low-intervention wine. The growers he works with from across central Victoria farm with a like-minded philosophy of organic farming and sustainability.
The wines have a delicacy and unforced feel to them. Josh makes only a small amount of each wine and they are in high demand from those who want to get in early on the next generation of Cooper. He is one to watch closely as his own style and craftsmanship continue to evolve.
