Individual analysis of the Adelaide Hills by grape variety:
Sauvignon Blanc | Shiraz | Pinot Noir | Sparkling | Alternative varieties
Adelaide Hills Chardonnay is both intriguing and challenging to explore.
There are so many subregional characteristics exerting influence over the flavour profile, and many different winemaker interpretations also influencing the finished wines.
The best producers are tackling this variety with confidence and courage, many bottling several single-vineyard sites within their range to show off different subregions. They are also courageously pursuing a distinctively modern Australian style: fruit-forward but lean, allowing the pristine qualities of superior berries, gently handled, to shine through.
