2018 K1 Chardonnay 2018 - Adelaide Hills

2018 Chardonnay

Adelaide Hills

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 nose offers a beautifully complex combination of citrus, green apples and toasty, buttery aromas.

Palate: The palate is delightfully smooth, rich and buttery with lingering fruity notes of lemons and green apples.

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

Cellaring: Drink now or to 2026
