2018 Bleasdale Adelaide Hills Chardonnay

'No single element dominates and there's a lovely citric tang to the finish that adds length and persistence. Stylish drinking for the price - that's the real story.'

DESCRIPTION
  • Originally founded in the beautiful Langhorne Creek region, Bleasdale has constantly strived to capture the essence of the vineyards and vintages through their wines. Apart from their highly acclaimed red wines, grown on the original property, in 2011 Bleasdale began sourcing Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc from the cooler Adelaide Hills region, and has quickly built a reputation for quality and value white wines.

    The Adelaide Hills is known for its ability to produce outstanding cool climate Chardonnay grapes. Clonal selection and site diversity within the Hills offer complexity and character.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Individual blocks are picked separately before wild yeast fermentation on full juice solids in French oak puncheons. Malolactic fermentation in oak, lees stirred regularly to build texture before blending. Maturation in new (25%) and seasoned French oak puncheons for 9 months.

    TASTING NOTES

    Attractive stone fruit and citrus aromas with complexity from maturation on fermentation lees. The palate is fine and long with persistent flavour supported by oak structure and length.

    Reviews for 2017 vintage - 

    'Quartz green and bright. Wild yeast, full solids juice and partial malo in puncheons is the back story. Articulate and elegant chardonnay with white stone fruit, lemon citrus, yeast derived complexity and toasty oak all expertly placed. No single element dominates and there's a lovely citric tang to the finish that adds length and persistence. Stylish drinking for the price - that's the real story.
