SMALL VALLEY CHARDONNAY 2016

Gumeracha was known by the Peramangk people as ƒ??Umerachaƒ?? meaning watering place. Our vineyards sit in the beautiful Torrens Valley 36km northeast of Adelaide. The sheltered vines trail into an intimate valley where a central teardrop pond takes the sky. The valley feels sacred and alive with greens and golds, a perfect place to create something beautiful. This along with and being 360m above sea leave and an average rain fall of 756mm lends its self to the cooler wine varieties and wine styles. Sandy loam, over shale with overlaying clay and sandstone. Help make up such a diverse site.

Nose: A backdrop of citrus and fresh peach are overlaid with gentle notes of toasted hazelnut
Mouth: Great acidity and a subtle mineral tinge provide a satisfying finish.
Winemaking notes: The 2016 Chardonnay was harvested early morning on the 21st February 2016. The process of mostly tank fermented juice was used in order to maintain the beautiful tropical fruits of Chardonnay. There is a hint of background noise coming from French oak (17% new) to add texture
