Knotts Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2017
Region:Adelaide Hills, SA
It is awhile since we have had a Chardonnay with the smart appeal of this Knotts. Over the last few years we sold a collection of Adelaide Hills and McLaren vale Chardonnays purchased from a winery in McLaren vale and they were all excellent value for money. This Chardonnay is a couple of steps up in quality and shows the gentle light texture and pure aromas that come from carefully made wine produced from free run juice.
This was not made by us but was discovered by Benjamin and the story is a familiar one to us; ‘it did not meet the quality I need as I charge customers over $50’. Many of the wines we buy are offered for similar reasons. Alas I cannot reveal the grower-maker but it is the sort of thing you could ask Benjamin at the next tasting and likely he will whisper an answer. Up in price and way up in quality.
