Kangarilla Road Organic Chardonnay 2012 (only 1 btl left)
Winery/Brand: Kangarilla Road
Leading into September and just prior to budburst, winter rainfall was close to long term average for most parts of the Adelaide Hills, resulting in soil moisture profiles being full. General conditions during the majority of the ripening period were conducive to excellent flavour development and the retention of natural acidity in the fruit. Vintage conditions have resulted in some of the best quality fruit for a number of years.
The 2012 vintage was one of the most condensed seen in McLaren Vale with crushing completed by the end of March compared with the middle of April in 2011. The McLaren Vale vintage was light in crop, but of excellent quality, one of the best. Harvest weather conditions during February and March saw cool nights but warm days ideal for ripening.
