The Bidgeebong Triangle encompasses three distinct districts, Tumbarumba at the foothills of the Snowy Mountains, Hilltops and the Murrumbidgee plain around Gundagai. A vibrantly fruit driven, easy drinking cool climate Chardonnay, the finish is long and lingering.
Bidgeebong's state of the art winery is located at Wagga Wagga, in close proximity to Charles Sturt University, the nation's major wine science and research centre. Bidgeebong's vineyards are meticulously managed to yield grapes of optimum flavour and balanced acidity. The estate's Chardonnay vines in particular are some of the most fastidiously husbanded examples in the region. Parcels of Chardonnay are harvested and delivered promptly to the estate wineworks where they are crushed, inoculated and vinified to a fruit driven style, completely unwooded and unoaked. A combination of natural and controlled primary fermentation techniques are employed to construct a wine of great depth and complexity. Alcohol 12.5%
Mid straw colour. Clean and flavoursome with an abundance of tropical fruit flavours and aromas. A rich and generous easy drinking Chardonnay showing vigorous varietal characters complemented by a fresh clean finish. A white that would go nicely with smoked trout, fetta quiche or salmon fillets.

About the Bidgeebong Winery
Bidgeebong's wines come from the south-west slopes of NSW, an area emerging as the source for some of Australia's most interesting and exciting premium and super-premium wines
The Bidgeebong Triangle encompasses three distinct districts, Tumbarumba in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains, the Hilltops district centred on the town of Young, and the Murrumbidgee plain around Gundagai on the Hume Highway about half way between Sydney and Melbourne. The name Bidgeebong is a combination of Murrumbidgee and Billabong. The Murrumbidgee River is the lifeline of the region. Billabongs meaning places of still water in the Wiradjuri language, were the gathering or meeting places of the original owners of the area, the Wiradjuri tribe. The Wiradjuri occupied this land from time immemorial until Irish farmers established and named the first stations here in the 1800s. Bidgeebong»
