Bimbadgen, an Aboriginal word meaning ‘place of good view’ is located high on a hill overlooking Australia’s oldest wine region. The winery features a striking bell tower set amongst the vineyards which were first planted in the 1960’s.

This Chardonnay from the cool climate of Tumbarumba displays aromas of stonefruit, peach and melon. The peach flavour carries through onto the palate, which is balanced by subtle nuances of French oak. This is an easy drinking, fruit driven style that is made to enjoy now, whilst fresh and lively.
