Vineyard Situated in the Snowy Mountains, Tumbarumba is located on the part of the Australian Alps featuring Mount Kosciuszko, Australia’s highest peak, with vineyards at altitudes ranging from 300 to 800 metres.
Wine Making The fruit is handpicked and whole bunched pressed using a gentle champagne press cycle. No enzymes or sulphur are used at the press tray and the juice is oxidatively handled to get rid of oxidative enzymes early on in the winemaking process. The wine is left at ambient or if needed chilled to 15 degrees and transferred to old French oak barrel with full solids and minimal sulphur is added. The wine is allowed to ferment using wild yeast and left unsulfured until the following summer when in most cases the wine completes full malo- lactic fermentation. A minimal amount of sulphur is added and left in barrel for a total of 10 months where it is racked off gross lees and transferred to tank. The resulting wine is bottled using no finings and minimal filtration.
Tasting Notes

Fresh citrus blossom and flinty barrel ferment characters. A textured yet complex palate, that is softly generous and structured around a clean acid line.


"Honey and mint, melon, gentle spicy oak, slight varnish note. Golden, wheat, tangy ripe lemon, cool mint, stonefruit, savoury cheesy finish of decent length, grapefruity aftertaste. Nice." Gary Walsh, The Wine Front - 91 POINTS
