From the very pockets of Piccadilly Valley, an intimate and long treasured patch of the cool Adelaide Hills vineyards spread, comes this elegant, focussed and regal example of Chardonnay at its complex best.
Fruit was sourced from a single vineyard located in the subregion of the Piccadilly Valley in the cool climate Adelaide Hills. At 520 metres altitude, this single vineyards produces grapes with purity, complexity and superb natural acidity.
Using only the finest free run component, the juice underwent complete primary fermentation in French oak barriques with wild yeasts. Wine remained on lees for the duration of maturation to encourage texture and complexity. After eight months in 40% new oak the wine was barrel selected then blended prior to bottling in December 2015.
