An elegant full bodied wine showing strong regional characteristics. Tropical melon and peach flavours a crisp and youthful wine with crisp clear acid finish.
New Norcia Abbey Chardonnay is made from old vines grown on the certified organic vineyard at the foot of Bindoon Hill.
The vineyard is dry grown and the fruit handpicked and selected. The lack of irrigation leads to greater fruit flavour and intensity and character as well as seasonal variation. The rainfall variations influence the amount of moisture available while the variations in temperature, particularly at picking, can also have a significant effect on the vintage.
This greater influence of the season on a particular vintage intensifies the regional characteristics of the wine.
