Chardonnay Adelaide Hills South Australia
Sourced exclusively from Shaw + Smith's picturesque Lenswood property on Adelaide Hills, established 1999, a great amount of work on the ground has significantly enhanced the virtues of a truly amazing Chardonnay vineyard. Hand picked grapes are whole bunch pressed into a high proportion of new 500 Litres French oak puncheons for a rich course of barrel ferments and term of maturation on gross sedimentery lees. An exquisite, fine boned Chardonnay in new world Burgundian styling, so highly articulate of an exceptional vineyard site.
Available in cartons of six
Vibrant pale straw. Wonderfully aromatic nose, matchstick and flint over a purity of varietal punch, grapefruits and melba peach. The palate is fresh and alive with rich minerality, oyster shell, grilled nuts, classy leesy nougat and honeyed toast, its refined and pristine acid line in support of fleshy, well developed, old world richness.
