Windowrie Family Reserve Chardonnay 2017

Made by Anthony D’Onise and the O’Dea family from their base in central west New South Wales off a single vineyard, just over 30 years old that surrounds the family homestead.

Windowrie, Family Reserve, Chardonnay, Cowra, 2017

A modern take, with a balance of fruit and winemaking artifice. White peach stone fruit skin with lime citrus and fig richness with cedary, celery seed oak. It’s about balance that’s just achieved: purity of lime citrus making for a fine, fishbone like skeleton to stick richer stonefruit elements to. Finishing with a toothsome amount of grip, the oaky/caramel latte and nutty wheatmeal savoury components push this to big white meat food land.

RRP: $35
