Trials Mean Advances Never Stop
Trial Bin W157 Adelaidean-Mount Lofty Range Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2016
Region: Adelaide Hills, SA
A small advance for Glug was installing, in mid 2017, a micro bottling machine. This means we can bottle single barrels and experiments that work. The latter I call Trial Bins and Benjamin has conducted a vast number of blending trials over many years, forever searching for the best result. I find it gratifying that now, a few of his fine achievements, can be offered to customers. Naturally the Trial Bins are limited in cases but Glug customers are very aware of the oddness of this business. The GI region called the Adelaide Hills covers a large area and while it is all good the choice area is higher which is perfect for white varieties. This Trial comes partly from this core region but as with our reds judicious additions make a more complex and satisfying wine. This is a great purchase for students of the ways of Glug.
