Hesketh Subregional Selection Lobethal Chardonnay

Hesketh Subregional Selection Lobethal Chardonnay

This special release is made to not only embody the Adelaide Hills, but to reflect the unique characteristics of the Lobethal sub region. The grapes for this wine came from grower David Neale in the Lobethal sub region of the Adelaide Hills. The vineyard has an altitude of approximately 420m above sea level and has gentle, undulating north – south rows that capture maximum sunshine. The fruit for this wine was picked on the 11th of March and pressed into second-fill French oak Barriques and Hogsheads. Primary fermentation lasted for 30 days in which the barrels were stored in cool temperatures. Malolactic fermentation was partially completed in barrel and the lees were stirred monthly. Barrel aged for 8 months prior to bottling and release.
