Origin: Derwent Valley
Style: Medium-bodied white wine aged in new French oak
Hand-picked Chardonnay fruit from 40-year-old vines, whole bunch pressing, 12 months on lees. Complex character just breaking the ice. Lean, detailed and thought-provoking. Tons of flair. There’s a lot to like here. Matchsticks, yellow apple, peach, ginger, toast and assorted spices. Chardonnay to the nines. Excellent.
Nav Singh is the man behind Domaine Simha – simple philosophy, unmatched experience. In his winemaking, he uses low to no additives, ferments in amphora and experiments with whole bunch fermentation and amphora ageing. Fruit is sourced from Upper Derwent, Coal River and Huon Valley. Some of the best sommeliers of Australia consider Nav’s wines as an equivalent to premium Burgundies that they have been pouring for years. Strong words backed up by stellar quality.
