Product Description

In a year where Adelaide Hills Chardonnay shone brightly, this example is no exception. Handpicked from a single vineyard south of Echunga, the grapes were gently whole bunch pressed and fermented with wild yeast in French oak barrels. Ten months on lees resulted in a beautifully focussed wine displaying subtle oak with citrus and nutty overtones, and a fine acidity on the back palate. Rediscover one of the Adelaide Hill’s best varietals.
