Eden Road Wine Company Courabyra Chardonnay 2015

The Eden Road Courabyra Chardonnay is an unoaked Chardonnay which displays the delightful fruit characters that this wonderful grape variety can give.

Located in Murrumbateman in New South Wales' Canberra Wine District, boutique winery Eden Road was established in 2008 by businessman Chris Coffman and was awarded the most prestigious wine award in Australia - The Jimmy Watson - for its first vintage of The Long Road Shiraz in 2009. Its collection of cool climate wines in a raft of exciting and original styles are highly-prized, and owe much to the soils the vines are planted on which were formed over 400 million years ago and are some of the oldest on the planet.

Vintage

2012 was incredible for Tumbarumba Chardonnay. It was challenging, with lots of rainfall, however it fell in big storms rather than constantly. There were plenty of sunshine hours in between the rain and there was enough sunshine to really ripen the fruit. 2012 is shaping up to be a benchmark vintage for Tumbarumba with fantastic acidity.

Vineyard

The vineyard sites throughout Tumbarrumba rise from 400 to 800 metres above sea level to the foothills of the Snowy Mountain. Courabyra is situated just northwest of the village of Tumbarrumba at 740m above sea level and is one of the highest altitude vineyards in the country. The vineyard is a six hectare vineyard, two hectares of Chardonnay. The clone used is one of the Penfolds clones, grown on decomposed granite with iron stone deposits soils at an average yield of four tonnes per hectare. The fruit is all hand-picked.

Winemaking

An unoaked style. The winemaking was kept simple in order to express the terroir. The fruit was whole bunchpressed and transferred to stainless steel for fermentation with indigenous yeast. The wine was then matured on its gross lees in tank for 15 months and stirred on a weekly basis. No additives were used except a small amount of sulphur prior to bottling. The wine went through 100% malolactic fermentation.

Tasting Note

Unoaked and bursting with vivacious notes of lemon peel, this is restrained and elegant Chardonnay with great length and a long life ahead

A super pairing with sashimi and goats cheese salad

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
