Personalised Mountadam Marble Hill Chardonnay 2018 14% 750ml

The growing season for vintage 2015 started well. Above average winter rain then filled the soils and dams. August and then spring were drier and warmer than average, and the vines got away to a very healthy start. An average December was followed by below average temperatures in January. During the second week of January good rain fell, which kept the vines healthy and grapes ripening.

Established in 1972 as one of Australia's pioneer Chardonnay producers, Mountadam was founded by the late David Wynn, without question one of the most significant contributors to the Australian wine industry and an important part of the Mountadam story. In selecting the land for the Mountadam vineyard, Wynn was the first to recognise the potential of a cool, elevated site to produce wines of great elegance and structure, and chose an area high above the Eden Valley, which he named High Eden. At 570 metres above sea level, Mountadam is still to this day one of Australia's most elevated vineyards. As of 2005, the vineyard has been owned by South Australian businessman David Brown, who has made significant investment in vineyard improvement and expansion.
