If you were setting out to make an Australian answer to Chablis, where would you start?

The answer would have to be in cool-climate, limestone soil Rylstone, in NSW’s Central Ranges. About 45 minutes this side of Mudgee, but much higher and cooler, the region was pioneered by the de Beaurepaire family in the late 1990s.

This wine is not given any new oak, but some older neutral barrels are used during fermentation to add texture and complexity. With fresh acidity, and fruit that walks the line between citrus and stone, this wine is great for richer dishes such as cheese soufflé or anything mornay. 

Great value Australian Chardonnay can be hard to find, but this unique style from Sydney’s back yard fits the bill.
