Bunya Bunya Chardonnay

Bunya Bunya Chardonnay

from 25.00

In 1887 two Bunya Bunya trees were planted in the front lawn of the new homestead.  Majestically they still stand tall giving welcome shade from the summer sun.

Bunya Bunya trees are unique and rare, qualities we thought appropriate to take pride of place on the label of our Chardonnay.

Tasting Notes

The Chardonnay is sourced from our western facing block. The yields are a little lower from this block which gives added intensity. The Chardonnay shows some lemon and nutmeg on the nose while it has a fresh citrus flavoured palate with a tight finish. The potential to cellar for the next 3 -5 years.
