A dry winter, followed by a windy spring presented some challenges for the growing season, and made irrigation management the key to getting through the hot and very dry summer that came next. Careful irrigation through spring and summer was required to allow the vines to stay healthy and carry the fruit through to harvest.
The 2019 Cloudy but Fine Chardonnay is made with high quality A graded fruit from a low yielding vineyard in the Adelaide Hills GI. Charlie (winemaker and “young gun of wine” finalist) stopped the winemaking process of stabilising the wine because it tasted so awesome he didn’t want the wines gorgeous notes to be lost. This is why the wine looks cloudy… but only… Cloudy but Fine.
