This wine's fruit depth, fine structure and length are Nepenthe hallmarks, all that we strive for in our renowned Chardonnay.
Adelaide Hills Chardonnay has a reputation of excellence based on a regional style that is crisp and vibrant. The Nepenthe Chardonnay is a great example, with minimalist winemaking techniques allowing the varietal and regional qualities to reflect in the wine. The fruit is sourced from two vineyards, situated at Lenswood and Echunga, each contribute unique nuances to the flavour profile of the wine. The Lenswood vineyard at a height of 510m is our coolest vineyard, producing fruit with fresh citrus and elegant structure. The Echunga vineyard, at a lower altitude and therefore warmer, imparts sweeter, tropical fruit.
