Tasting Note

Beautifully-knit flavours of citrus and lemon curd upfront, followed by subtle oak derived notes of clove-spiced pear and roasted almond. It has a creamy texture and racy acidity that drives a long lingering finish.

Vinification

Hand Harvested, chilled to 4˚C, crushed and destemmed. Gentle air bag pressing achieved free run extraction of approx. 550 Litres/tonne. No pressings inclusion. The wine was wild fermented with full solids in a combination of 50% new and 50% 2nd use French Oak Hogs Heads. 80% natural Malolactic Fermentation allowed before sulphuring. Regular lees stirring occurred throughout the wine’s 6 months maturation in barrel. Unfined with sterile filtration prior to bottling.

Vineyard

Longview Vineyard – Pound Road, Macclesfield, Adelaide Hills.

The cool climate, southern Adelaide Hills Longview Vineyard supplied fruit for the 2020 Of The Wind Chardonnay. An elevation of 300 to 350 meters, a southerly aspect and temperatures mediated by southerly breezes off of Lake Alexandrina assert the vineyard’s cool climate and help to retain acidity and fruit purity.
