2018 Michael Hall Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, Piccadilly

2018 Michael Hall Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, Piccadilly

The Garden Block of Bernie and Sandy Swaby lies next to the Mount Lofty Botanical Gardens, established to benefit from the cool air currents descending from Mt Lofty.

Good winter rains preceded average spring temperatures and a warm January. Volatile temperature swings from mid-February delivered a later than expected vintage. Hand-picked on 28 March, whole-bunch pressed, wild yeast fermented in French oak puncheons (20% new, Vicard), 34% malolactic fermentation, nine months on yeast lees, filtered and bottled. Grapefruit, almond meal, Lemon pith and Kaffir lime.
