Description

Altitude has a significant effect on grape growing; the concentration of oxygen, the amount of sunlight exposure, as well as the temperature. At 313m above sea level, the grapes picked for Wolf Blass Altitude Adelaide Hills Chardonnay achieve excellent levels of freshness and acidity. Adelaide Hills’ high altitude climate is further tempered by occasional fog and cloud cover, which, combined with long bursts of gentle sunshine, allow for long, slow ripening and full flavour development. For this wine, 60% was matured with French oak for up to 5 months to help build complexity and structure while retaining a fresh fruit focus.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance Appearance
    Pale to mid gold with a subtle green hue.
  • Palate
    A balanced, medium-bodied palate with juicy nectarine and stone fruit flavours, and a touch of subtle oak. A good acid backbone and nice length with a generous, well-rounded and zesty finish.
  • Nose Nose
    Good complexity on the nose with plenty of stone fruit aromatics and hints of peach-skin balanced with subtle oak notes.

Sommelier Review

“Its a nice lovely oaked chardonnay. It has good balance between oak and fruit with a nice zesty finish. Great wine if you don't want to reach deep in your pocket.”
