The Region: Southern Australia’s picturesque wine region is located east of the Barossa Valley and extends for over 300km along the Murray River. This long-established region has more Chardonnay plantings than all the Southern wine growing regions combined in Australia. Chardonnay from this region is vibrant with ripe flavours and oak is often used to support the richness of the wines and add further complexity. Riverland’s continental climate, flat terrain and long hours of sunshine mean the vines receive consistent, quality sunlight, greatly reducing their chance of disease and ensuring fully ripe, flavourful fruit.
The Wine: Diving into the iconic white wines of Australia, this blend of Chardonnay and Semillon has been taken a step further with the addition of bourbon oak. The wine is full bodied with notes of grilled peach, baked pear and tropical citrus. The bourbon oak delivers a twist of caramel, vanilla bean and subtle baking spice. A rich and textured mouthfeel is balanced with fresh acidity and a long lingering finish. A lovely sipper with complex flavours and unique profile that is sure to excite.
