Michael Hall Wines, Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, Piccadilly 2021
'Bernie Swaby’s Garden Block lies next to the Mount Lofty Botanical Gardens, established to benefit from cool air currents descending from Mt Lofty in the Adelaide Hills. It lies on soils of humus and sandy loam over clay and ripens late due to cool summer nights and chilly autumns. Hand-picked on the 28th March, destemmed and pressed, wild yeast barrel-fermented, 20% malolactic fermentation, matured for 11 months on yeast lees in French oak puncheons (29% new, Damy), filtered and bottled.'
2150 bottles produced.

“This has impressive intensity and aromas of sliced peach, lemon and pear sit fresh amid nicely placed oak and a minerally edge. The palate is succulently fresh, with acidity drawing a mouthwatering finish deep. Sliced nectarines hold long and fresh. Drink now. Screw cap.” 95/100 Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com
