2020 Sang de Pigeon Chardonnay, Adelaide Hills

2020 Sang de Pigeon Chardonnay, Adelaide Hills

Sang de Pigeon (pigeon’s blood) is a nod to my former life as a jewellery valuer. It’s the trade term for the colour of the finest rubies, invariably from the Mogok Stone Tract in Myanmar. The fruit for this pale-coloured Chardonnay was grown far to the south-east, in South Australia’s Adelaide Hills.

Low rainfall throughout winter and the subsequent growing season led to a very small crop. Hand-picked on the 18th, 26th and 27th of March from the Hill Block and Garden Vineyard, both in Piccadilly. Barrel-fermented with 25% malolactic, matured for 11 months on yeast lees in French oak (21% new), filtered and bottled.
