McWilliam’s Appellation Tumbarumba Pinot Noir Chardonnay
Tumbarumba’s high altitude provides true cool climate conditions to ensure slow ripening and complex flavour development for this sparkling wine.
Displaying lifted citrus fruits, honeysuckle and subtle toasty brioche aromas.
Pinot Noir delivers here richness of fruit with some savoury complex flavours. Chardonnay in support provides excellent length, overall creating a wine of full fruit flavour of citrus and apples with a hint of fresh bread from the 12 months on lees. Wonderful flavours with great poise and balance.
Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed; tank-fermented and matured on lees for 10 months; bottled and tiraged with youthful (13) and older material. Vibrantly fresh and crisp, it has good length and balance, complexity the only element missing.
