Ashton Hills Chardonnay 2009

91+ points

Adelaide Hills, South Australia. 13.5%

This is a very very good wine, potentially excellent. Best cellared for another year. Cool climate, in a coiled powerful style.

Unusually for wine labels this has something clear meaningful (to non wine geeks) and worth reading. See photo.

Unfortunately this is the 2nd to last vintage of this wine. The vines have been grafted over to Pinot Noir – such a shame.
