Bondar Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2020
Fruit sourced from a single vineyard in Echunga in the Adelaide Hills. Hand-picked and lightly pressed straight to barrel sans sulphur, the juice was allowed to ferment naturally in french oak barrels (about 25% new) for ten months.
The 2020 vintage produced tiny yields for Chardonnay in the Adelaide Hills, with crops up to 50% down in areas of the Rathmine vineyard. The resulting wine is a beautifully balanced version with intense white peach flavours sitting proudly on top of more subtle cedar oak and a flick of reduction.
