The Story

The purchase of the Koomooloo property in 1989 marked the start of an adventure and a dream realised for Philip Shaw. Much study and planning had gone into finding this site, one that was ideal for making elegant, bright, intense wines, with its high altitude, cool climate and aspects to the North, South and East. At 900 m altitude, Koomooloo is one of the highest planted vineyards in Australia

The Wine

Koomooloo vineyard has produced some outstanding chardonnay over many years. The fruit for The Architect comes from our younger vines planted in 1995. This Chardonnay displays an excellent light medium colour with a hint of green and an aroma that is bright with hints of honey. The Architect is not overtly fruity and its time on lees and in old barrels for around 6 months has given a subtle elegant fruit character with fine texture.

The Chardonnay is the most established variety in the Orange region and is noted for its bright elegant styles. It is well suited to the varying altitudes and conditions.

A great wine is a marriage between the vineyard and the winemaker. Our wines have strong, bight elegant varietal fruit character aiming for subtle rather than the ripe fruit character that ages extremely well. Philip Shaw.

Tasting Note: Light straw with intense lime green hues. Bright and subtle varietal fruit with light fine texture and excellent complexities and long acid finish.
