Piccadilly Valley, Adelaide Hills. The vineyard sits on the cooler,
west-facing side of the valley and is organically farmed. Soils are
limestone over clay with ironstone ridges. High altitude.
After a relatively wet spring and early growing season, conditions
were excellent for fruit set and flowering. The growing season overall
was quite dry with little disease pressure or weather pressure from
mid-Autumn heatwaves. The ripening period was gentle, which was
excellent for achieving fruit flavour and ripeness at lower baume
while retaining high levels of natural acidity. Higher yields were
seen across most varieties, a welcome bonus after lower-than-average
yields of the past years. This vintage will no doubt be marked as one
of the best.
Hand-picked Chardonnay, foot stomped for wild fermentation on skins.
After 30 days total maceration, the wine is then pressed to 600L old
oak barrels for maturation on full lees. 24ppm of sulphur added.
