SKU: DANWLCHAR21
Whole bunches from our best Chardonnay Vineyard in the heart of the Adelaide Hills were hand picked in late March, in the twilight, our Chardonnay's acid sunrise, being the cool of early evening, then destemmed in small batches without crushing the fruit to fill our press exactly. The free run juice was then fermented in small stainless steel tank between 11 and 14 degrees Celsius and then finished fermentation in some new and first use French Oak Barriques. The wine has a high level of natural acidity, and although bone dry and alcohol of only 12.5%. This 12th Vintage of Twilight of the Adelaide Hills Chardonnay was bottled after 9 months with minimal winemaking artifact to capture the essence of the vineyard.

Grape Variety

Chardonnay

Region

Adelaide Hills

Size

750ml

Wine Style

White - crisp, thirst quenching, light-bodied

Palate

Dry and yet soft, with an acidic backbone nailing it firmly to the chardonnay phylum chordata. The stone fruits return, along with a hint of exotica, such as guava. There is good grip and texture, yet also some steeliness and minerality. A rainwater quality coupled with chardonnay’s fruit intensity - these two qualities bounce off one another rather than meld.
