Overview

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.

Expert Reviews

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

Aroma

Aromas of Granny Smith apples and pears on the nose with tantalising notes of orange blossom.

Palate

The palate is fresh and bright with citrus flavours reminiscent of finger limes and orange oil.

Food Matching

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.

Grays Tasting Panel Review

Fresh, pure, lively and bright! This is made in a modern style and is drinking beautifully. The light use of oak lets the clean citrus notes shine through. Pair with a delicate white fish or zingy salad – Penny, Grays Wine Tasting Panel August 2015

The Kangarilla Road philosophy remains unchanged: “To produce wines that we enjoy drinking – wines that can be enjoyed with or without food and especially with friends.”
