The MCC Chardonnay takes flight

We are pleased to announce that our 2008 MCC Chardonnay has been awarded 96 points out of a possible 100 by Tim White in the Australian Financial Review.

Match-strike and flint-smelling with peach fuzz fruit and brininess. Has pith bite in the mouth, gentle lacy wafts of oak toast and an intense grapefruit-nectarine character.

This wonderful wine has also made it’s mark with Ralph Kyte-Powell and Jane Faulkner, both reviewing the wine in The Age recently.

Printhie is doing great things with grapes from Orange in NSW. This Mount Canobolas Collection Chardonnay (MCC) is led by grapefruit and nectarine aromas with typical tangy cool-grown chardonnay traits. Barrel influences is subordinate to the fruit, and smooth almond-like flavour complexity quietly adds palate interest.

– 5 Stars | Ralph Kyte-Powell | The Age | Saturday 13th March

This is possibly the most delicious chardonnay I’ve tasted from the Orange area; it’s a cracker and the first reserve from Printhie. It’s more on the stone fruit, fig and richer spectrum yet not heavy; beautifully balanced with spice notes, sleek oak intergration and terrific length. Bravo.

@WinePeloton #epic #cycling was from Orange, over the Blue Mountains, to Penrith on the outskirts of Sydney. Why? Life is short
