2014 Forest Edge Vineyard Chardonnay

2014 Forest Edge Vineyard Chardonnay

Orange, NSW

Perfect lemon green in colour. Being lower in ripeness, the oak regime was changed to very little new oak and not a long time in barrel. Bright citrus aromas and bran meal characters from the wild ferment. While mid weight, the palate has great tropical fruit flavours. This is certainly helped by a fresh acidity to carry those flavours.

Vinification
Whole bunch pressing, wild ferments in new French oak have come together in spectacular fashion. The wine was fermented in 35% new French oak and the balance older, from a variety of cooperages.
Winemaker Comments
The Orange district is widely recognized as one of Australia’s premium cool climate regions. Rob Crawford established the ‘Forest Edge’ Vineyard in 1988. Vintage 2014 is Brokenwood’s 15th year of handling fruit from Forest Edge. The very wet winter of 2013 set up an excellent growing season with just enough rain through November, December and January 2014. Unfortunately February had 9 wet days for nearly 100mm and the Chardonnay ripening slowed. All eyes were on the weather and with 34mm falling on the 2nd March, it was enough for us to pick everything.
Food Pairing
Seafood and veal.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
