Mr. Riggs Wine Co. 'Cold Chalk' Chardonnay | Adelaide Hills

  • Details

    Tomich' vineyard situated in the Adelaide Hills, is where Ben found the perfect cool site to make a dry Chardonnay renowned for the purity of its aroma and taste – a cool climate vineyard located in an area which is 2.5 degrees cooler than McLaren Vale on average. The vines are set to a vertical shoot positioning and made up of a combination of new and exciting French Dijon, 96, 76 clones and just a touch of American clone I10. The French clones add beautiful pear and apple characters and a richness and lingering minerality whilst the American adds a sharp citrus with a fine line of acid.

     

    Aroma

    Lifted and aromatic with notes of lemon, green apple, and a touch of vanilla.

    Palate

    Flinty, steely edge with a crisp, clean finish.
