Wine Code Breaker #362

2016 Printhie Super Duper Chardonnay, Orange, New South Wales 

The Orange wine region is located about 300km due West of Sydney.  It is an elevated landscape that belies its altitude.  Dominated by Mount Canobolis as there is nothing higher to the West.  A cool climate region that is relatively new, yet producing some stunning wines with pure fruit and regional zing. 

The 2016 Printhie Super Duper Chardonnay from Orange in New South Wales is a bright golden coloured wine.  The nose appeals instantly with its peaches, cumquat and other citrus elements.  There is oatmeal and honey with a touch of caramel.  The palate has the citrus, nuts and white peaches.  It is a complex palate with a creamy texture that provides its persistence.  It is cool, it is elevated, it is zinging with deliciousness.
