This terraced block that is perched above the picturesque Onkaparinga Gorge continues to invigorate and excite as it is a natural amphitheatre for Chardonnay to proudly express both complexity and varietal finesse.
- Growing Conditions
Heavy winter rains filled the soil profile and set the vines up well. Ideal growing conditions through spring encouraged a healthy canopy.
A comparatively cool and dry February and March allowed the vines to ripen at a steady pace, retaining natural acidity and developing bright fruit flavours at lower sugar levels.
- Food Pairing
Spencer gulf prawns grilled with lime and garlic aioli.
