Eden Road The Long Road Chardonnay

Eden Road The Long Road Chardonnay is often described as a new wave Ausiie Chardonnay. This wine is almost naked in that it see's very little oak influence which allows the grapes natural purity of fruit to shine through. This is an elegent white wine with subtle tropical fruit flavours and citrus characteristics which make it a delight to drink.

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.


The fruit is sourced from two vineyards: a 30 year old vineyard in Maragle, situated at 450 metres above sea level and a 28 year old vineyard in Courabyra, situated at an altitude of 750 metres. The final blend represents a classic expression of Tumbarumba Chardonnay. Both vineyards are cropped at eight tonnes per hectare, with canopy management and balanced yields. The rootstocks are grafted on two clones: a Penfolds clone and V3/V11.


The fruit was gently pressed directly into French oak barriques, of which 10% were new, without settling and inoculated with selected yeasts to achieve fruit purity. It was then matured for 12 months on its lees prior to being racked and bottled.
