2022 Michael Hall Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, Piccadilly
Bernie Swaby’s Garden Block lies next to the Mount Lofty Botanical Gardens, established to benefit from the 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. Average winter rains were followed by a mild summer. Yields were low with light bunches of excellent quality.
Hand-picked on the 30th of March, destemmed and pressed to French oak puncheons (30% new), 80% malolactic fermentation, matured for 11 months on yeast lees, filtered and bottled.
1380 bottles produced.
