Atlas Block 9 Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2021


The fruit here was sourced from the Woodside sub-region of the Adelaide Hills. It went through a wild ferment, before spending ten months maturing on lees. A bright lemon/lime hue, this is tight, taut, refined and still very youthful. From a superb vintage, there are hints of stonefruit, peaches, lemons and orange rinds. There is a seamless and seductive texture too. With good acidity and balance, and a finish which lingers nicely, drink over the next three to six years. Lots to like here.
