Eden Road The Long Road Chardonnay 2012

Exquisite Chardonnay here from the Eden Road team of Nick Spencer and Hamish Young.

Aromatic complexity on first approach: flinty, grilled stonefruit - all overlaid with with a mix of florals and creamy hints. Entry shows a wine with a stoney, mineral edge; the wine has a focus that builds - racy and lively - it creates interest and length.

Finishes long and clean, gradually slowing to a memorable conclusion. Excellent example of modern Chardonnay, reaffirms Tumbarumba's suitability to the variety. 93
