The late ripening of a small crop in perfect, cool, dry and sunny conditions, has again defined a very special Chardonnay, from Pat and Ted’s Vineyard on Mount Bonython in the distinguished Piccadilly Valley terroir.
The 2023 Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay has a mesmerising green-yellow colour. The terroir distinctive apple, nectarine and floral aromas also have a hint of exotic fig and spice. The flavours are intense, the texture significant and the cool year acid is apparent with a cleansing finish.
The aroma is very fresh and delicate, and the flavours are of sweet fruit balanced against the significant cool year freshness and grapefruit finish.
This is a very special wine, the product of a very cool late vintage.
