Ariadne Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2013
Region: Adelaide Hills, SA
As settlement advanced across the country pioneer grape growers tackled the Australian high country but as you need different skills to the low lying, warmer regions their efforts were not successful. While vineyards in the Adelaide Hills and the ranges of Eden Valley date back to the 1840s we had to wait for the great post-war table wine awakening for adventurous souls to again plant these regions. I thank them as our drinking is so much richer. Nicholas Bourke (consulting winemaker) found this wonderful wine for us and such is our confidence in his ability he now buys on our behalf so we do not lose any discoveries. The wine was shipped to the Barossa Valley and was bottled in early December, 2015. These days Adelaide Hills is all about Sauvignon Blanc and lovely parcels like this can Ariadne Chardonnay can be bought cheaply.
