Light green tinged pale straw in colour. The perfumed lift of pears, apples and vanilla bean nougat set the aromatics bar high with this Eden Valley Chardonnay, grown in the rugged Eastern Barossa Ranges near Peggy’s Hill. The streamlined sleek elegant palate has a clean steel acid thread running through seamless layers of pear apple fruit and bright spice oak, with an extended line and length to a very tidy finish.

This is an extremely food friendly Chardonnay, ready to roll with soft shell crab, lemon butter scallops, ginger soy flash fried barramundi, twice cooked sticky Chinese pork, marinated satay chicken skewers, or eggplant parmigiana.

2018 Vintage Summary:

The growing season in Eden Valley started off well, with winter 2017 rainfall up slightly higher than average. In spring, drier soils combined with warmer than average spring days meant the vine canopies grew quickly; flowering well and setting a good number of bunches. Summer rainfall for us was down on average. January and February were warm and dry, with very warm temperatures in February slowing down the pace of ripening. With the lower summer rainfall, growers with access to water, soil moisture monitoring, good irrigation management and healthy soils experienced less stress – and subsequently delivered sound fruit and consistent yields. These are all practices that Brockenchack invest heavily into. The Indian summer of March and early April was what some people are calling ‘the icing on the cake’, with average temperatures, without extremes. Overall a strong, healthy crop for us with our Chardonnay grapes being picked around the middle of March.
