Overview

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.

Winery Tasting Notes

The 2013 Petaluma Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay is a full flavoured, yet delicate complex dry white wine. White peach and nectarine combine beautifully with a hint of gun flint and smokey bacon.

The palate is rich, soft and has lovely natural acid, the barrel fermentation and ageing imparting nuttiness and an enticing creaminess. This wonderful acid backbone and trademark white peach fruit herald this Chardonnay as a great drink now wine, and one that will age gracefully under screwcap for many years.
