Our joint venture with Sir Stirling & Lady Moss extends to the “White Helmet” range which opens with two wines, 2014 Adelaide Hills Chardonnay and 2014 McLaren Vale Grenache in matching burgundy bottles.
The Chardonnay label depicts Moss driving a Mercedes-Benz W196R to win his first Grand Prix, the 1955 British Formula One Grand Prix at Aintree on July 16th 1955. His emphatic win at Monaco on May 13th 1956 driving a Maserati 250F is depicted on the Grenache label.
Aromatic, pretty nose of floral notes combining with light red and dark berry fruit, and hints of cherry, walnut, and a touch of earthiness. Beautiful balance between tannins, fruit and acidity, renders this a seamless, elegant wine with a long finish. Single vineyard 80-year old bush vines, hand-picked.
