It’s not over-made, nor is it under-made; it’s all just so. It’s a wine characterized by its purity, line, and length. There’s a silky almond gloss and flavour, mild lemon and grapefruit, perhaps some pie apple with spice, though its flavours are subdued, yet beautifully clean. The rain-washed-white-pebble kind of acidity (well, you have to talk some shit, every now and then as it’s part of the brief), is something else. As is the aforementioned length. Expect subtlety and quiet confidence, but don’t come seeking oak and peaches. Here’s a Chardonnay for you. Drink: 2019-2028+ (Jun18)

Established in 1985, the Cooinda Vale vineyard is ideally positioned facing northeast overlooking the Coal River in southern Tasmania. On the 43.5 Latitude line, the vineyard is planted on northeast facing slopes at 130m above sea level. This is a unique microclimatic location, being well protected from prevailing winds but still highly influenced by maritime conditions. The long growing season, which can extend into May, with high sunshine hours, predominately winter rainfall and the occasional frost and snow, combine to provide an excellent condition for cool climate grape varieties, such as Chardonnay.
