Burns and Fuller Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2016

Size: 750

About This Wine

An outstanding vintage in the Adelaide Hills due to consistently dry but not too hot conditions. A dry winter and spring ensured that water resources were stretched and maintaining soil moisture a challenge. Autumn was perfect with warm dry days and cool nights allowing the fruit to ripen to perfection whilst maintaining natural acidity. Pale yellow in colour with bright green highlights. The nose is fresh, crisp and primarily fruit-driven, showcasing white peach, citrus and cut apple aromas with just a hint of oak derived spice. The palate is equally delicate and precise with elegant stone fruit and pear flavours wrapped in crisp mineral acidity before a long, complex finish.

Adelaide Hills

The Adelaide Hills is one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, and amongst the most diverse in terms of climate, soil and topography. Because of this, many different varietals are planted here with the most dominant being Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. It is generally thought of as a cooler region, especially when compared to neighbouring Barossa to the north and Mclaren vale and Langhorne Creek to the south.

NZ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has been popular in Australia for a while now, but Adelaide hills Sauvignon Blanc (the most planted grape in the region) could be considered the Aussie Savvy Blanc. From www.adelaidehillswine.com.au about their Sauvignon Blanc: “Wines that are textured, edgy, vibrant and dry with exceptional fruit definition, length and crispness that marry superbly with summer seafood.”

You can also find some cool climate shiraz from the Adelaide hills, defying the more common big bold style that is usually seen in Australian Shiraz.
