Quick Overview

from Me - This is stunning, its a highly aromatic, pretty, yet very textural wine. An intensely floral bouquet with citrus, orange blossom, honey and hazelnut, leads to a beautifully intense, zesty palate of yellow and white fruits, citrus, unripe peaches and a tangy spicy edge. The nose alone is worth the entry fee, but the palate does not disappoint. ...... 

Product Description

Chardonnay was the absolute star of the Adelaide Hills in 2017. It was just killer...all over the region...and we rode the wave as best we could. Heaps of flavour, heaps of acid, heaps of funk. Sounds a bit like Jamiroquai...or is that just us...(yes, 90's tragics)...


It was a pleasure to be back doing our thing in the superb Bowe-Lees vineyard in Woodside. We get together with owners Ann and Michael each year and have a coffee and mull over life, the universe, the vineyard, the wines and everything. They seem to like what we're doing with their fruit and that's almost the highest praise we can think of.


With a happy 2016 vintage under our belts we didn't do anything too different in 2017. It was a wonderful, cool year so we picked it by hand fairly late, and the fruit came in looking pristine. The vineyard is 23 years old now, so some nice maturity to the vines. 


We leave all our wines alone in barrel, un-messed with, quietly maturing at their own speed. Tranquilo! We prefer not even to taste too often as it can sometimes make you doubt yourself and your philosophy. Just trust the quality of the fruit, the decision to pick when you did, and the minimal winemaking. 2017 has given us another wine in the mould of 2016, with terrific natural acidity, savoury complexity, funk, lemon zest, ginger spice and texture to burn. It's vital; it sings; it is a ring of flaming grapefruits.

The nose alone is worth the entry fee, but the palate does not disappoint.

Long, just medium bodied, zesty fruit filled, touch of oak almost negligible around the edges, and terrific length and filled with personality.

For early to medium term keeping, or just dive right in! I meant to taste, evaluate slowly, make notes etc, then, well, suddenly the bottle was gone. Its that kind of wine. Unlike Gary below, I didn’t like it, I loved it! Gavin
