Established in 1972 , Mountadam High Eden Estate is one of Australia’s oldest cool climate Chardonnay vineyards. Situated on a unique rocky outcrop the estate commands an easterly aspect over Eden Valley. All fruit used to craft this wine is grown on the estate.
94 Points "From the Mountadam vineyard, established in 1972, this is a flamboyant and powerful Chardonnay. Spicy ginger takes the lead, introducing a Chardonnay of tang and refinement. Phenolic grip, high class vanillin oak and high altitude acidity unite harmoniously on the finish." Tyson Stelzer
The fruit was picked in the cool of night at optimum maturity. Chilled and tank pressed and fermented in seasoned French oak barriques with partial malolactic fermentation. The emphasis in the cuvee was to select batches that expressed beautiful purity of fruit, minerality with oak only playing a gently supportive role.
