Eden Road Long Road Chardonnay

Eden Road The Long Road Chardonnay 2018

Tumbarumba, New South Wales   |    750ml   |    13.4%
We've enjoyed some brilliant Chardonnays from Eden Road in recent years and their 2018 The Long Road Chardonnay is again in fine form. Reflecting the near perfect growing conditions that prevailed in Tumbarumba throughout the 2018 vintage, this is an elegant, yet generous Chardonnay that draws natural comparisons to the great wines of Chablis.

The 2018 Eden Road The Long Road Chardonnay offers a delightfully lifted nose, showing white peach, lemon curd and brioche aromas. The palate is subtle, mineral and crisp with a perfect acidity. The vanilla oak flavours from barrel fermentation in French barriques (20% new) are subtle and perfectly integrated; the finish long and fresh.

The Eden Road wines all derive primarily from the ACT/NSW ‘High Country’ regions of Canberra District, Hilltops, Gundagai and Tumbarumba. The name has nothing to do with the Eden Valley. In fact Eden Road is supposed to suggest an ideal (as in the Garden of Eden), not a place.

The aim of this producer is to create a distinctive, clean and pure, refined range of wines from the cool climate vineyards of NSW and the continental climate of the Canberra district. And with access to a superb range of vineyards and a state of the art winery, they are in the perfect position to do just that.

"Winner: Best New Winery. Canberra is an exciting region at the moment, and there are many new players hitting unthinkable heights of quality. Winemaker Nick Spencer has demonstrated - across a whole range of styles and prices - that Eden Road Wines is a force to be reckoned with.”- Nick Stock, The Age/SMH Good Wine Guide 2011

A perfect vintage across all regions and varieties, long even-ripening conditions produced beautiful fruity and structural wines for our Long Road labels, with excellent flavours and natural acidity.

Tasting notes: Delightfully lifted nose, showing white peach, lemon curd and brioche aromas. The palate is subtle, mineral and crisp with a perfect acidity.

The vanilla oak flavours from barrel fermentation in French barriques (20% new) are subtle and perfectly integrated. The finish is long and fresh.

Winemaking: Whole bunch-pressed directly to a selection of French oak barriques. The alcoholic fermentation was carried out with a selected yeast. Only 10% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation. This wine was then aged for 10 months in barrels on full lees. It was then fined, cold stabilised and sterile filtered before bottling.

Customer Reviews

Love it Review by James
Liked the 2011 version of this wine and think the 2012 is event better; very lean and a racy style. Gary Walsh's review comparing it to Chablis is spot on. (Posted on 7/16/2013)
