2016 Wild Child Adelaide Hills Chardonnay
The Chardonnay fruit was sourced from Uraidla (550m) in the Adelaide Hills. This cool climate vineyard produces concentrated flavours and high natural acid due to the low yields of 4 to 5 T/HA. Good winter rains prevailed in the Adelaide Hills during 2014. The spring and summer were warm and dry, producing small bunches and a light crop. The fruit from the Burgundian clones was hand-picked at 12.6 Baume to capture grapefruit aromas and flavours.
The viticulture and winemaking has produced a cool climate chardonnay with a pale straw colour, elegant grapefruit / citrus notes and flavours combined with subtle oak textures and a long crisp finish. Cellar 8+ years.
13.5% vol/alc. 100 cases made.
