Chenin Blanc (100%), GUNDAGAI

The 2022/2023 growing season commenced with good spring rains, giving way to a temperate summer.  Mild, cool conditions through to harvest yielded disease-free, beautifully vibrant fruit.

Chenin Blanc is grown expertly by Simon Robertson and his team at Tumblong Hills on Wiradjuri Country.  The soil is a deep, ferrous loam.

High quality grapes were hand-harvested in mid-March at 12.1 Baumé and whole-bunch pressed oxidatively.  The juice was fermented on full lees in seasoned Allier puncheons, before undergoing a malolactic fermentation.  The wine was bottled in December 2023. 

This dry style offers a mineral, saline, textural quality that makes it very hard to put down. The Parasol Chenin Blanc makes a wonderful match with shellfish or any type of fresh seafood or Asian cuisine.
