2018 Eden Valley Chardonnay

$30 Per Bottle

RRP $35

Our Eden Valley Chardonnay is now the eighth release of this wine. We were so impressed by the fruit off our Craneford Vineyard in previous years, that we saw much promise in producing a premium interpretation of the Chardonnay variety. The wine is a modern, light, new-world expression.

Our Eden Valley vineyard lies just South of the small township of Craneford, at an elevation of 420m. As like our other Eden Valley locations, the soil and climate varies quite considerably to that of the Barossa Valley floor. It is generally wetter, cooler and the soils tend to be skeletal and minerally. Aspect also varies significantly, with rolling hills and valleys providing much site variation. The Craneford Vineyard is tended to by our own viticulturalist, Peter Wild, who ensures utmost care is taken in every step of the vine cycle.

Winemakers CommentsSitting up on a rocky hill at over 420 metres in the rather exposed Eden Valley ranges, gives the vines a determined character as they are fully exposed to the elements. Harvested to retain the fresh fruity characters that the cooler Eden Valley region is renowned for, this wine is light and fresh with a crisp finish. - Richard Langford
