Bethany First Village Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Barossa South Australia
Barossa makes a gentler style of Chardonnay. The Schrapel family had the foresight to sow Chardonnay vines long ago, the quality of fruit that grows from these old plantings is now outstanding. A fortnight of ferment is followed by two months of lees stirring battonage on sedimentery lees. Grapefruit, apples and pears to the bouquet, the palate flows with delicate flavours, bakery and butternut, golden apple, peaches and quince. Like all great Chardonnay, Bethany affords the opportunity to experience a growing complexity of remarkable richness as the wine breathes and continues to evolve.
