2016 Catlin Adelaide Hills Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
93

Sourced from a Single Vineyard near Hahndorf the wine was wild yeast fermented in French oak and kept on lees for 10 months prior to bottling.

Pristine white peach, oyster shell, flashes of flint and citrus frame the elegant nose. The palate is light on it’s feet and benefits from a lithe lemony acidity with green apple and fig that's given depth by understated stone fruits and background mealy notes that will slowly make themselves known in the years to come. Chalky acidity gives great texture.

A wine that grows in the glass, as much as it will grow in stature in years to come.
