Another Bargain From Adelaide Hills
Darby Lane Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2016
Region: Adelaide Hills
Adelaide sprawls along a coastal plain with market gardens to the north while south are the coastal vineyard districts of Reynella-now housing - and McLaren Vale.
The eastern back drop to Adelaide is a rapidly rising fault scarp that lifts to 400 metres and further east peaks at 727 metres at Mount Lofty.
With some vineyards as high as 600 metres this provides a wonderful contrast in flavours to the vineyards of the warm coastal plain.
In general consumers favour whites from cooler regions which are crisper and lighter and retain natural acidity.
