WINEMAKING NOTES Our Adelaide Hills Chardonnay was sourced from the Springhead Road, Mt Torrens vineyard. At 450m above sea level, this cool site has produced this fine elegant Chardonnay. Following night harvesting in the cool of the early morning, the grapes were gently pressed and much of the grape solids was retained.  Natural fermentation and maturation in a large new oak vat and several French oak hogsheads has imparted nuttiness to the fruit. Natural malo-lactic secondary fermentation has softened the acidity and provided the wonderful texture and length.The Adelaide Hills are recognised as an ideal environment in which to grow premium fruit. The coolness of the region produces wines of elegance. .

VINTAGE CONDITIONS  2015 had very low rainfall and warmer temperatures throughout the growing season resulting in an earlier harvest than would be expected. The resulting flavours of wines are quite intense.

OAK TREATMENT  3,500 litre new French oak vat and 2 year old French oak hogsheads - 6 months
