2007 No.11 Chardonnay Orange

Philip Shaw : Australia : International Wine Club
Philip Shaw Wines are made only from the grapes grown on Koomooloo, a 46ha vineyard, most of which was planted in 1988 and 1989. Philip has been making wine in Australia for more than 4 decades and approaches each aspect of winemaking with a healthy mix of innovation and unrelenting quality standards. After 3 vintages, Philips son Damian is now running the business side of the vineyard/winery, with Philip spending more time building a relationship with his wines. “No.11 is the number of my dream Chardonnay plot. It slopes to the south, away from the sun making it one of the coolest sites in the vineyard : ideal for Chardonnay….” – Philip Shaw. Made from 100% Chardonnay. Brilliant clear gold in color with green flashes, with complex white peach, grapefruit and orange blossom aromas, balanced with barrel fermented characters. Ripe stone fruit flavors, with the delicate richness of oak. Long elegant lemon acidity with a lovely depth of fig and dried banana, apples and pears. Finishes long, with well integrated oak. Ideal for drinking in the next 2 years. 90 Points Wine Enthusiast.
