Elegant cooler climate Chardonnay, crisp but with lovely tropical fruits
One Chain Vineyards, like Thistledown, is overseen by Peter Leske, Giles Cooke MW and Fergal Tynan MW One Chain works with growers to source fruit from some of the most established regions of South Australia. These wines are inspired by a love for the Australian national sport. Indeed, the name One Chain is the imperial measurement for 22 yards, or the length of a cricket pitch. However, you really don't need to be a connoisseur of the game to be bowled over by the restrained, elegant style of the Chardonnay and the bright red fruit and subtle oak of the Shiraz Cabernet.
Tasting Note: This Chardonnay is sourced from cooler climate vineyards to give a delicious, tangy white wine. Crisp, lively and bright, this citrus scented Chardonnay is well balanced, with tropical fruit and melon on the palate before presenting a vibrant, textured finish.
