VINEYARD Charleston, Adelaide Hills
SOIL calcareous loam
SEASON a season peppered with a few rain events ensured healthy vines leading into vintage. Fortunately this vineyard escaped any damage from hail where neighbouring vineyards were hit early in the ripening period. The easterly facing slope allowed gentle and gradual flavour development with the Pinot Noir portion on higher and more exposed ground developing the vibrant red fruited portion of the blend.
WINEMAKING a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Co-fermentation followed by extended time on lees for the duration of malolactic fermentation. The stabilised wine went through secondary fermentation in tank before finishing touches were added as a dosage prior to bottling.
WINEMAKER COMMENTS it is hard to resist a glass of bubbles! We particularly love the balance in this wine with fresh apples and strawberries, a creamy texture and soft yet ever-present acidity – Cheers, Jules
