From multi award winning winemaker Philip Shaw, twice voted International Wine Challenge Winemaker of the Year, this is a stellar Chardonnay with a definite Burgundian lean. Complex and vibrant, with intense citrus and pineapple fruits, it's medium bodied and with a lovely honeyed palate. Great on its own, it is also a perfect match for seafood, particularly scallops, or roast chicken.

Buy this if...you love classy, oaked Chardonnay.

True Chardonnay class from an award-winning winemaker. Toasty, ripe and mineral. One to confound all chardonnay-phobes...

The Producer

Searching for the ideal site to plant a vineyard proved to be a 20 year journey for winemaker Philip Shaw but the final choice came by accident as he flew over the rolling hills of Orange in New South Wales in 1988. Further investigation revealed a wonderful balance of sunshine, soil, differing aspects and of course the high altitude at 900m above sea level that contributes to the unique freshness and concentration in the wines. The 47 hectares of vineyard are on the slopes of the now extinct volcano Mt Canobolas, making it one of the highest vineyards in Australia.

The Winemaker

Two-time winner of the International Wine Challenge Winemaker of the Year Award, this is Philip Shaw's solo venture after decades of premium winemaking in Australia. Tellingly, he waited nearly 20 years for the vineyard to reach full maturity before attempting to produce wines to sell and believes that the final wine is a marriage between the vineyard and the winemaking - not refining it, but getting it right first time.

The Region

Located approximately 260km west of Sydney on the slopes of the Great Dividing Ranges, the Orange vineyards begin at around 600m above sea level, rising to 1,100m. The high altitude of the Koomooloo vineyard offers cool ripening conditions and high levels of ultra-violet light which greatly assist in flavour and colour development of the berries and a long cool ripening season with low rainfall.

Epoisses Poulet

This is surely a bucket-list recipe for any cheese lover out there - the unctuous creamy, cheesy sauce is crying out for a glass of rich, mineral Chardonnay - Burgundian or otherwise.

Smoked Haddock, Spinach, Emmental & Creme Fraiche

A rich, creamy smoked fish dish which calls for a mineral, structured white, perhaps with a little oak to draw out the nuttiness of the wild rice

Veal with Creamy Mushrooms

Veal can pair well with full bodied whites - try a richer Chardonnay with good acidity.
