William James Maxwell was an architectural sculptor who migrated from Scotland to Australia in 1875. He built a mock castle and established a family vineyard just outside Adelaide, which he named Woodlands Park. His son planted vines in nearby McLaren Vale and his grandson served a term as winemaker for Hardy Wines at the historic Tintara wineworks. William Maxwell's progeny remain in McLaren Vale, producing the southern hemisphere's most successful brands of Honey Mead, as well as vintages of the most extraordinary value in McLaren Vale Shiraz. But what does Maxwell taste like? Gentleman James Halliday describes Maxwell as robust, picking the eyes out of McLaren Vale shiraz; licorice, dark chocolate, savoury firm, ripe tannins, blackberry, positive oak the icing on the cake.

Johann Gottfried Scholz served in the Prussian army as a battlefield bonesetter, before joining the great emigration of Lutherans from Silesia to Barossa Valley. After building a family homestead along the alluvial banks of Para River, Gottfried established a mixed farm of livestock and crops, fruit trees and grapevines, Semillon and Shiraz. His acumen at healing fractures and setting splints made Gottfried a leading local identity, as his homestead cottage evolved into the Barossa's very first private hospital. Over a century later, the exceptional quality of harvest from Gottfried's original homestead, made the fruit of Willows Vineyard, an essential component in the most memorable vintages of Peter Lehmann, Saltram and Kaiser Stuhl.

Mountadam High Eden Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Eden Valley South Australia
From the best parcels of fruit grown to the High Eden Ridge Estate vineyard, these are the earliest plantings of Chardonnay in South Austraia and some of the oldest in the country. The east facing escarpment rises 550 metres above sea level and separates the dramatically cooler Eden Valley, providing a myriad of interesting mesoclimates and vineyards which have been refined over time, along with the winemaking. The vines are painstakingly pruned by hand and yields are methodically thinned to ensure grapes develop the requisite intensity of flavour.

Mountadam vineyards were re-established as part of a deeply personal project by one of Australia's most entrepreneurial winemaking dynasties. The cool climes of High Eden Ridge, the large clonal variation and the very different aspects of the Mountadam blocks necessitate careful attention to the ripening of fruit. Fruit is harvested throughout the chill of night and gently pressed, juice are fermented in an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak barriques and treated to the occasional lees stirring battonage, completion of malolactic, racked and returned, followed by a year's maturation and final racking before assemblage.
Light golden hue. Classic Chardonnay fruit aromas of peach, nectarine and nashi pear. A rich barrel ferment palate of grilled nuts with clove and nutmeg spice supported by a citrus grapefruit core, all contributing to the immense flavour and length. Match with fried whiting fillets, camembert or recipes which call for white truffle.
