The name: We simply refer to this wine via its origin. The Adelaide Hills wine region borders McLaren Vale and is in its own right a world-class region, being the home to many of Australia’s best white wines, including Chardonnay. These hills provide elevated and cooler sites for viticulture, producing wines with good natural acid, structure and elegance.
Colour & Aroma: Brilliant straw with golden hues. Aroma is filled with vibrant nectarine, white peach and melon fruits coupled with roasted hazelnut and oak spice.
Palate: The palate displays citrus fruits, lemon curd and almond meal notes. Lees stirring has added texture and mouth feel, creating a wine with balance and complexity. The wine shows great fruit length and refined oak. This is a fine and superbly balanced Chardonnay that captures the essence of its cool-climate origin.
Winemaking: A portion of the juice was barrel fermented in new French oak using wild yeast and partial solids to create depth and texture. The remainder of the batch was matured in seasoned French oak for ten months prior to blending.
Cellaring potential: While this wine is made to enjoy upon release, further maturation over 3 to 7 years will enable it to develop even more complexity, assuming satisfactory cellaring conditions.
