Winery/Brand: Roundtable


Unashamedly influenced by a variety of French styles and although Batch 1 is 100% chardonnay , some structural inspiration has been pulled from the iconic Hunter semillons. The nose should have a naughty musky side to the typical pineapply chardonnay fruit, the solidsy cloudy ferment add more dimensions which will continue to evolve in the bottle. There is no oak to overly complicate things, lees stirring complements the fruit length and malo is not carried out in order to retain a zingier natural acidity through the mid-palate.



The Story

"After working everywhere from Brazil to Moldova, Vales homeboy Nick Bickford made this crunchy biodynamic tracker from the New South Wales Canowindra tablelands. What a relief. Bone-dry, furry with appetising tannin, and loaded with Old World rusticism, it's clean, fine, focused and stunning. Respect. Bickie just rewrote Oz chardonnay. Bouillabaise. 94/100" Philip White, The Advertiser 19/04/06
