Region: Adelaide Hills, South Australia
Chardonnay from the Willsmore vineyard in Piccadilly Valley, Adelaide Hills. East facing slope @ average of 500 metres above sea level. Sandy loam on sandstone & ironstone. Planted 2004. Un-Cert. Organically farmed.
Whole Bunch / gentle oxidative pressing, barrel fermented. 9 month barrel ageing on fine lees.
The result is a textural chardonnay with a fine acid line running through it to pull all of the different components together.
