Excuse me while I gush for a while, but in my humble opinion, this wine is a TEN, a knock-out, a Michael Jordan, you get the idea. It’s from one of our favourite Adelaide Hills producers who we have come to rely on for consistently good wines and when it comes to this, their top chardonnay, it is consistently fantastic.
So, what does fantastic wine taste like? It is on the bigger side of the chardonnay spectrum, with the holy trinity of new French oak (30%), lees stirring and malolactic fermentation. So, it’s a rich style, but the richness is balanced by freshness from the altitude and cool climate of the Hills. Green apple and jasmine are there on the nose, while the palate is all stone fruit, pears and a touch of creaminess. Just delightful.

Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
