This, our third organic Chardonnay is made from a fully certified 'A' grade vineyard in the Willunga sub region. Organic farming is essentially a traditional or historical approach to farming where no synthetic chemicals are used and intervention is minimal.
30% of the wine was fermented in new French oak hogsheads and remained in oak for one month. This light use of oak contributes subtle texture to what is essentially a crisp fresh Chardonnay style.

The wine has a low pH (3.16), 30% fermented and matured for 1 month in new French hogsheads, the remainder in stainless steel. Has more presence, drive and overall fruit flavour than its Adelaide Hills sibling, and greater freshness. All in all, a surprising and contrasting success. Rating 91 - Drink by 2016, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (NOV/2014).
Winery Tasting Notes
Aromas of Granny Smith apples and pears on the nose with tantalising notes of orange blossom.
The palate is fresh and bright with citrus flavours reminiscent of finger limes and orange oil.
Fresh spring and summer foods are best enjoyed with a bottle of our Organic Chardonnay. A beach holiday with Blue Swimmer crab terrine, caprese salad or a kingfish ceviche with lime and chilli. You can also enjoy this wine with richer chicken flavours or a range of vegetarian cuisine.
