Description

Reserve Bin A Chardonnay has evolved into a wine that is now a distinctive, single-region style in its own right, with a contemporary and expressive Adelaide Hills chardonnay persona. Fruit is hand-picked into small bins and then whole-bunch pressed. A portion of the juice is incrementally filled to barrel directly from the press and allowed to undergo a natural fermentation, sans inoculation. Every new and seasoned French oak barrique is its own unique 225-litre ferment. Enhanced mouthfeel and complexity is achieved by fermenting and maturing on solids with regular yeast lees stirring. 100% malolactic fermentation (all natural).

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance Appearance
    Vibrant light straw with lime green hues.
  • Nose Nose
    Archetypical Adelaide Hills – ostensibly white stone fruits peach and nectarine. Sensitive batonnage of yeast lees has coaxed out a complexing nuttiness – assorted cashew, almond and Brazil nut with an ever so slight trace of nutmeg.
  • Palate
    Unravels in the glass to reveal an enthralling and multi-dimensional package. Hints of citrus and nashi pear with the reported 40% of new oak totally absorbed, barely noticeable. Impressively well-integrated and complex.

Sommelier Review

“The 2016 Reserve Bin A Chardonnay opens with lovely baking bread, honeyed toast and marzipan notes with a core of apricots, melon and pink grapefruit. Medium-bodied, the palate has great elegance and expression, with pretty citrus and mineral accents and a nice phenolic texture, finishing long and lively. Great food wine.”
