Adelaide Hills, Australia

From blocks three and four in the Lenswood Vineyard. First planted in 1999, it has east and west facing aspects and reaches 500 meters above sea level. The soil is brown loam over clay with some broken shale and stone on the ridges. Whole bunches were chilled overnight, then pressed, before fermentation in new and used 500 litre French oak puncheons. The wine spent a further 10 months in barrel with gentle stirring.

A fine boned Chardonnay that reflects the conditions of the vintage and the character of this unique vineyard site. The 2018 vintage is very fresh with intensity of flavour including lemon pith and pickled ginger.

12.5% ABV / 750ml

Toast and sweet barrel notes, the palate has gorgeous sweet ripeness, but juicy orchard fruit and touches of peach before a savoury lemon and salt acidity.
