A limited release chardonnay sourced exclusively from the Piccadilly Valley sub-region of the Adelaide Hills, home of Ashton Hills. The Piccadilly Valley is the coldest and wettest part of the region, ideal growing conditions for Chardonnay. Ferment was sparked by indigenous yeasts and the wine matured in a combination of new and used French oak for nine months.


A harmonious mix of lime zest, white peach and florals. There’s a hint of sea spray and subtle cinnamon spice.


A delicate balance of density and tension. Glimpses of white peach, Jasmin and lemon curd feature on the palate. The feature of this wine is the integration of the powerful fruit profile, linear acidity and long elegant finish.

Professional Reviews

“A significant step up from its less expensive sibling. Fine aromas of grated parmesan, toasted hazelnuts and truffle. Reticent. Shins and elbows. A barrel cull, following an ambient fermentation and raising in new, one and two-year-old barrels. Little obvious fruit aromas, although fruit sweetness. Plenty of peat. Time will work magic here, such is the structural lattice of oak, mineral and the long-limbed cadence. Intriguing stuff.”

"Complex and evocative aromas of grapefruit pith, struck match, white flowers, mineral, wet stone and green melon. Focused, pure and precise on the palate. Really crunchy, the pin-point acidity works very nicely with the citrus, just-ripe stone fruit and melon flavours. Quite full and powerful and there’s decent grip on the finish as well."
