Description

The Chardonnay of old became overly oaky, buttery and far too rich. This wine is altogether different. Beautiful Adelaide cool climate fruit with just a hint of oak, so the fruit shines.

Winemaking Notes

We simply start in the vineyard by selecting the grapes from the best possible site in the most appropriate growing areas for Chardonnay, which is in the Adelaide Hills. The exceptionally fine weather allowed us to fully ripen our Chardonnay to achieve excellent and generous fruit lift.

Comments

Peter Yeomans

Amazing wine! Really smooth silky mouthfeel with ripe fruit sweetness with subtle honey flavour balanced with well integrated acid and light touch of oak. Match with chicken based Asian curries like green Thai chicken. Great value wine
