Petaluma harvests chardonnay fruit from seven distinguished site vineyards in the Piccadilly Valley sub-region of the Adelaide Hills. The result is a very textured wine with lovely lingering acidity.

The Piccadilly Valley has the coolest and most Burgundy like climate of South Australia with free draining, aerobic red soils over Cambrian shales. The Petaluma distinguished site vineyards are closely spaced with vertical canopies and are fastidiously managed with shoot and fruit thinning to achieve very modest crop levels of around 5 to 7 tonnes/hectare.

Expert Reviews

Almond, cloves, vanilla, toasty savoury barrel work, nectarine and grapefruit. Some warmth but offset by a cool flinty texture. Toast, vanilla and lime on a pretty long finish. Working hard, but doing a good job. Big style, though also pretty tight with it – carries it off well anyway. Purring with power. Good release for Petaluma. Rating 93 - Drink : 2013 - 2018 Gary Walsh, Wine Front (OCT/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

The seven “distinguished site” vineyards in the Piccadilly Valley had a wonderful year leading into vintage 2012. The season broke early in 2011, we received fantastic rain from the mid March, and it really didn't stop raining until the mid September 2011. So the vineyards were beautifully set up.


The 2012 Petaluma Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay is a delicate, full flavoured complex dry white. Clean bright white peach and nectarine aromas and a hint of gun-flint and smoky bacon are backed up by a wonderful creamy mouthfeel,lovely natural acidity contributes to a wine of great complexity and length.

The 2012 is reminiscent of the great 2010 vintage and is a wonderful testament to our magnificent Piccadilly Valley vineyards.
