2015 Forest Edge Vineyard Chardonnay

2015 Forest Edge Vineyard Chardonnay

Orange, NSW

Excellent lifted aroma, almost floral in nature and perfect colour from early picking. Wild ferment, mealy lees character evident and not too much oak for a lightish framed wine. Some tropical fruit flavours but more on the citrus spectrum. Perfect acid that carries the flavours right to the finish.

Wine Profile
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 recognised as one of Australia’s premium cool climate regions. Rob Crawford established the ‘Forest Edge’ Vineyard in 1988. Vintage 2015 is Brokenwood’s 16th year of handling fruit from Forest Edge. The 2015 vintage for the Orange region can only be described as excellent. On the back of 250mm of rain over winter and then a dry Spring/Summer the grape growing was disease free with perfect ripening. It is not often a region records rain free months but Orange did so with 3 months as no rain fell in September and December 2014, nor January 2015. It was very close to 4 months as October 2014 only had a light shower of 1.5mm.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with seafood and veal dishes.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
