Six Brothers

2019 Adelaide Hills Chardonnay

Good winter rains and a warm spring resulted in a fantastic start to vintage. A series of very warm weather events throughout the early growing season, but the well managed vineyards made it a through. A vintage of two halves. The first half of heat waves put pressure on winemakers and viticulturists alike, the second half allowed fruit to be picked at the optimum flavour ripeness.

PALATE

Stone fruits persist amid a creme brûlée like creaminess framed by subtle up-front oak tannins and perfectly poised acidity. A delightful wine now but will benefit from time in bottle.

Aroma

White stone fruits, notably peach & nectarine with a hints of floral notes. Integrated French Oak through barrel fermentation offering a nutty nougat influence.
