Adelaide Hills, Australia
90 points


Nestled in the picturesque Mount Lofty Ranges to the east of Adelaide, the Adelaide Hills stands as one of Australia's most expansive wine regions. Renowned for its size and geographical diversity, this region's varied altitudes, climates, and soils collectively contribute to the creation of its unique and exceptional cool climate wines.

The 2022 vintage experienced a consistently cool growing season, devoid of prolonged periods of intense heat. This favorable climate proved instrumental in preserving the freshness and acidity of the fruit. Optimal conditions prevailed throughout ripening and harvest, ensuring high yields coupled with exceptional flavor development and acid retention.

This 'Top Order' Chardonnay originates from meticulously hand-selected fruit in the cool climate of the Adelaide Hills, where lower temperatures foster tempered and even ripening. Infused with beautiful fragrance and harmoniously balanced natural acidity, the wine undergoes an exquisite aging process. Maturing in old French barriques, with a portion gracefully resting in tank maturation, the result is an elegantly layered and textural wine that captivates the senses.

"Batting in the Top Order of the Australian team was a great honour. We were a tight knit group committed to our craft and driven to deliver at the highest level." - Ricky Ponting
