Eden Valley is located in the cooler South Mount Lofty Ranges, east of the Barossa Valley, with an altitude of 450-500m, rainfall of around 700mm and well-drained soils consisting of sandy loam over clay. The Cranes Chardonnay has taken its name from Charles Crane, who pioneered the region at the source of the North Para River near Eden Valley in 1866 and after whom the village of Craneford was named.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw with green hues.
Lifted aromas of fragrant white peach and nectarine, pear skin and clove with underlying hints of nougat, bread dough, vanilla and grapefruit.
The palate is rich and complex, exhibiting nashi pear, melon and grapefruit flavours, with a beautifully balanced mid-palate weight, creamy texture and a fine line of acidity that provides purity and length.

Excellent vintage, 5+ years (from vintage).
