Basket Range Chardonnay 2019

Basket Range Chardonnay 2019

Regular price $42.00

From the oldest vineyard in Basket Range, Adelaide Hills, the family Broderick do amazing things. Second generation vigneron Sholto Broderick explains, ‘the pinot was grafted over to chardonnay, and this is the first release of wine from this grafting”. Thanks Shotlo. This is whole bunch pressed and (naturally) barrel fermented (one barrel). The yeasty-lees is stirred through maturation to build texture. 
 
Smoky, minerally characters are strong in the  bouquet. Lemon balm, grapefruit, pithy notes as well as all the fruity juice scents. It’s crunchy in the palate with a softness despite that. Feels very juicy, primary, unevolved in a way but charming for freshness and acid tang. Wild with that scent of bitumen and smoke, a bit creeps into palate but more like 'minerally feel'. A wild streak overall. Take your time.
