From the producer
Lance's thoughts... Nose: lifted, grassy, snow peas, hints of citrus. Palate: pear, beautiful hints of lemon and lime. Nice big, but soft acid, light easy drinking!
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.
The rules are there ain’t no rules, but here are some foods we think will work pretty well with this wine...
