Dr Frederick Kiel would take the trek by paddle steamer from Melbourne every summer during the late 1800s to spend his summers at Sorrento. His children established a grazing station nearby, on a property acquired from the Baillieu family along Portsea Ocean Beach, ultimately planted to vineyards in 2000. These are the most extreme western longitudes of Mornington, the undulating paddocks and sweeping views of tempestuous Bass Strait are a magical place for growing Burgundesque styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, well protected north facing parcels of propitious free draining limestone and calcareous sands.

Bleasdale Adelaide Hills Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Adelaide Hills South Australia
Adelaide Hills are but an hour's drive from Bleasdale but the style of Chardonnay grown to the cool ripening aspects of elevated, undulating hillsides is a world away from that grown to the Bleasdale property at Langhorne Creek. The Adelaide Hills style is distinctly crisper and more aromatic, one could say it even tastes chilled at room temperature. An extravagant course of barrel ferments, wild yeast vinification and lees exposure makes a richly textured Chardonnay wine with good colour, savoury vanillan aromatics and solid palate structure.

Bleasdale are the nation's most enduring family operated winery, established 1858 when Frank Potts planted his vines on the banks of Bremer River. He named his property after Reverend John Ignatius Bleasdale who advocated a sober, wine drinking community to the exclusion of hard spirits. A sound business case indeed. Sauvignon Blanc grapes are hand picked from choice Adelaide Hills sites and gently whole bunch pressed directly to French oak barrels. Fermentations are inititated by wild indigenous yeasts from the vineyard still present on the skins, followed by a regimen of lees stirring battonage and nine months maturation before bottling.
Light straw yellow colour. The big, steely nose displays complex aroma of stonefruits and citrus, almond, tapioca and meal. A creamy palate with layers of melon, nectarine and golden delicious flavours, a touch of biscuit and lemon/ almond notes before a crisp, drying and savoury fruit filled finish. A revitalizing style for contemporary palates, the Chardonnay of choice to enjoy alongside prawns or shitake chicken tortelli.
