2014 Cold Chalk Chardonnay

As a young winemaker travelling the globe, the ‘Old World’ Chardonnays that Ben fell in love in the 1980’s were described as ‘like drinking cold chalk soup’, and have inspired him to make this beloved Adelaide Hills Chardonnay.

During the past few vintages, Ben has been searching for the perfect cold site to make a dry Chardonnay renowned for the purity of its aroma and taste.  ‘Tomich’ vineyard situated in the Adelaide Hills, is where he found it – a cool climate vineyard located in an area which is 2.5 degrees cooler than McLaren Vale on average.

The winemaking process has resulted in a wine that is higher in natural acid, low in alcohol, which aids in giving the ‘Cold Chalk’ it’s complexity. It demonstrates a flinty, steely edge and chalky mouth feel, without compromising the purity of the fruit in both flavour and aroma.
