Chardonnay
Adelaide Hills

Ever a lady of considerable force and refinement, is the Swaby.

The grapes are hand-harvested in small boxes and fermented whole bunch with no additives and pressed to barrel. Nightly battonage is implemented over a 9 month period of time helping to soften the wine and provide more texture. The wine spends 12 months total in French oak, of which 30% is new French barrique, the remainder is 2-3 year old French puncheons and barriques.

In 2015 she is assertive, voluptuous and persuasive with sweet oak notes and ripping acidity. A Burberry coat atop enviable cleavage. French-bistro flavours of burnt butter and sage entice and a thoroughly balanced palate satisfies. This vintage will cellar magnificently.
