About The Wine
Will Gilbert is a name to watch in NSW wine.
Having grown up in and around his father's winery, Will has NSW wine pumping through his veins. His modern approach to winemaking is drawing plenty of fresh attention toward his family label.
His focused expression of Chardonnay from Orange captures all the freshness and tension that you want to see in Chardonnay from cooler climates.
He uses ceramic eggs to excellent effect, highlighting the textural elements of the variety without excessive oak clouding the character of the wine.
It's fresh, lively, and very easy to drink.
Will Gilbert is a seventh-generation winemaker based in Mudgee in country NSW who's taken up the family mantle in recent years.
The Gilbert family sources fruit from local vineyards in and around the Mudgee area as well as from premium vineyards in the cooler region of Orange. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc feature heavily in their excellent lineup as well as a suite of experimental wines, including Pet Nats and Piquettes.
Will is one of the most exciting young winemaking talents in NSW at the moment. If you like to keep your ear close to the ground on what's hot, Will's wines are to have a close eye kept on them.
