Rikard Winery is producer of tiny parcels of ultra-premium, hand crafted wines from selected cool climate sites within the Orange wine region of NSW. It is the passionate endeavour of award winning winemaker William Rikard-Bell and his wife Kimberley.
This Chardonnay is made in a traditional full-bodied style. It is multifaceted and has been given the full treatment in the winery – 30% new French oak, malolactic fermentation, lees stirring for 12 months and full solids ferment. We aim to cram this wine full of flavour whilst maintaining balance and freshness.
Vineyard: Cool climate, high altitude vineyards of Orange, NSW.
Bouquet: Lemon curd, peach and Turkish figs on the nose with a hint of gun-smoke and toasted nuts.
Palate: The palate is delicate and balanced. Juicy acid keeps freshness whilst generous fruit & malo builds the mid-palate. Oak tannins support and hold the wine together, leaving a nutty finish.
