Brand Info In 1986, Geoff Hardy finally found the ideal location for producing cool climate award-winning wines in the Adelaide Hills. This vineyard later became known as the K1 by Geoff Hardy vineyard since this unique site was the first commercial planting of vines in the Kuitpo region.

Story K1 Chardonnay is styled to accentuate the characters of Kuitpo’s cool growing conditions and terroir. The fruit is gently handled to ensure aromatics are retained, with French oak and malolactic fermentation used to enhance the wine’s purity of fruit character.

Vintage The 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.

Nose The attractive and elegant nose offers complex toasty and buttery aromas.

Palate The flavours of this wine are rich, smooth and buttery with a hint of nuts on the sumptuous palate, which finishes tight and leaves the taste buds begging for more.

Food Pairings Try with chicken dishes such as 'Rustic Chicken' with onion, ham, white wine and herbs.
