CASES A MUST!!

"One-third fermented in French oak, the 2017 Chardonnay is a classic Padthaway expression of the variety, boasting pineapple and citrus flavors. For those of a certain age, it will bring back pleasant memories of Lindeman's Padthaway Chardonnay (NOT Bin 65), a medium-bodied, succulent style of Chardonnay that speaks for itself in its popularity." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Vineyards:
Our family vineyard is located in the picturesque and historic Padthaway valley, 300 km south of Adelaide. Our rich, fertile terra rosa soils, environmentally friendly viticulture, low yield and exceptional fruit is how we consistently produce outstanding wines. Small parcels of the highest quality fruit are selected from our family vineyard and handcrafted to create wines with amazing depth of flavour, style and balance...” David Bryson

Tasting Notes:
Light yellow with a pale straw hue. A classic nose of lemon, fresh stonefruit and melon. The palate is clean and fresh with mineral characters underpinning ripe pineapple and lime flavours. This wine will age beautifully over the next 4-5 years.
