Our Hill & Valley wines showcase the great diversity of the Barossa region. From the cooler Adelaide Hills to the elevated Eden Valley and the Barossa Valley floor. These ancient soils provide the base for great wines that speak of their origins. Fruit sourced from the cool climate Eden Valley, this Chardonnay has been perfectly crafted with barrel maturation.


Wine Profile
Winemaker Notes
Harvested in the cool of the night, a portion of free run juice was immediately racked to older and new oak, with the balance fermented in stainless steel tanks, with the following breakdown; 40% 2-3 year old french oak hogsheads 40% New French oak hogsheads 20% Tank fermented The wine in barrel spent 9 months on lees with occasional stirring to build complexity prior to blending, clarification and bottling.
Production
The grapes were sourced from two vineyards in the Eden Valley, maintained by William Hurn and Ben Zander. Both vineyards are planted at 400m asl and planted in shallow, rocky soils. A temperamental spring of 2019, and a hot & dry summer saw yields in the Barossa well below the 10-year average for vintage 2020. Fortunately the Eden Valley wasn’t impacted by weather events during the lead up to harvest. This mild weather allowed for beautiful, ripe and expressive Chardonnay to shine. The reduced yields meant ripening came on quickly, with the majority of Eden Valley Chardonnay harvested towards the end of February. Fortunately cool nights prevailed during the harvest period, allowing the fruit to be picked at its absolute optimum.
