From the very pockets of Piccadilly Valley, an intimate and long treasured patch of the cool Adelaide Hills vineyard spread, comes this elegant, focussed and regal example of Chardonnay at its complex best.


Varietal

Chardonnay 100%

Region

Piccadilly Valley, Adelaide Hills

Vineyard

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 vineyard produces grapes with purity, complexity and superb natural acidity.

Vinification

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 30% new oak the wine was barrel selected then blended prior to bottling in December 2016.

The wine

A layered nose showing white stone fruits and spice with hints of lemon curd, cashew and flint notes. The wine has power and poise, balanced by a tight, linear structure

Cellaring

Drink now or cellar 8-10 years.

Winemaker

Alexia Roberts

Alc/vol

13%
