Winery & Vintage Info

The Philip Shaw No.11 Chardonnay is produced from high altitude vineyards in a region firmly claiming its rightful place at the table of great Chardonnay regions, Orange of NSW.

No11 Chardonnay is named in reference to the original block that the grapes used to make this wine came from, block 11. More recently blocks 6 and 12, have been dominate in this wine.

Grapes for this wine have been hand harvested with coarse settling at ambient temperatures overnight. Indigenous yeasts were used for fermentation within French oak barriques, of which 30% were new oak. The wine went through partial malolactic fermentation in spring and bâttonage occurred during maturation. The wine spent ten months on fermentation solids.

They say it normally floods following a drought and in this case the old saying was proven correct. It was a wet winter and spring, and the start of summer was still full of hope. It was the earlier varieties such as Chardonnay that really stood out. It was a return to memories of the cooler vintages like 2012 where the wines are shy to begin with but hide a depth and elegance that will age for a considerable period of time. Not a great vintage for our bigger reds but classic for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
