STYLE This modern refined style of Chardonnay exhibits all the typical characters of the Adelaide Hills, displaying white peach, citrus and grapefruit’s with a fine acid line. Careful lees work and oak selection give this wine complexity and structural support. VINEYARD SELECTION: Premium vineyards from the Lobethal district, Oakbank and the Piccadilly Valley were selected for this Chardonnay. Each small parcel provides a different profile giving an overall complex wine, clonal material included Bernard clones 76, 96 with parcels from I10V1 and sparkling clone G9V7. VINTAGE: The Adelaide Hills 2016/17 growing season was cool and wet with record rainfall and low temperatures resulting in a late, cool vintage. The challenging conditions required heavy crop and leaf reduction to facilitate ripeness and disease control. Harvest was pushed into autumn developing more aromatic flavours and intense natural acidity. WINEMAKING: The fruit was hand picked then kept in cold storage at two degrees for several days. The fruit is whole bunch and whole berry pressed straight to barrel with a mix of barriques and puncheons with 15% new oak. The juice was fermented naturally with largely no malolactic fermentation, a small selection see partial malo to add complexity and soften the often-high acidity.
