Thistledown Great Escape Chardonnay

REGION: Eden Valley, Australia

VARIETIES: Chardonnay

VITICULTURE: Conventional

YEAR: 2022

ALCOHOL: 13.5%

INFO: Great Escape is a benchmark, cooler climate Chardonnay produced from fruit grown in the Eden Valley’s elevated vineyard sites which allow for a long ripening period which helps to maintain the natural sugar and acid balance of the grape.

As with all their wines, the winemaking process is a gentle one with the intention of preserving the natural flavours of the wine while at the same time building layers of texture. Fruit went directly to press after picking. The free run juice was run off to tank to settle. Retaining  a relatively high level of solids in the ferment, all of which is wild fermented in used French oak or concrete egg. 

Citrussy, subtle oak influence and a bright yet creamy palate. With moderate alcohol, focussed, crisp citrus fruit and a mouthwatering finish, this is an accomplished, truly modern style of this noble variety.
