-OH Wines Chardonnay 2017 (Orange, NSW) "...pear, nougat, vanilla..."
The small regional appellation of Orange can lay claim to being one of Australia’s most interesting wine regions. It is the only appellation based on altitude - beginning at 600 metres above seal level, to be precise. Fruit from any vines planted below this cannot be labelled as coming from Orange, but rather must adopt the more broadly used ‘Central Ranges’ designation. Because of such altitude (in fact, extending up to well over 1000
metres above sea level) Orange can be considered, by any measure, a cool climate wine region - despite being just over three and a half hours from Sydney. Australia’s first certified carbon neutral winery.
"From two exquisite Chardonnay vineyards in Australia's highest altitude wine region. Wild yeast fermented, partially in French oak, six months on fine lees. The epitome of cool climate Chardonnay. Pristine pure fruit, elegance, balance."
