Product Description

Col McBryde has been working with small batches of Chardonnay for a number of years, although until recently nothing had quite made the grade to be released under the Adelina label. That's all now changed. The 2018 was drawn from the Grigg vineyard, and this year the fruit was sourced from a vineyard called Udy's Rd, also in the Piccadilly Valley. The winemaking, however, remains the same. The fruit was hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed to concrete for indigenous primary and secondary fermentation, then it spent eight months on lees in seasoned oak prior to bottling. The name of the wine, by the way, is a nod to the Albert Camus novel L'Étranger ('The Stranger') and, in particular, the main character whose name is Meursault! This wine does not shame that name, at all, by the way. It's a very fine and compact, salty/mineral, nectarine and gentle spice-noted Chardonnay that is all class. It is simply too good for the price!
