Steeple Jack Unwooded Chardonnay – South Australia
In the days when ballast stone was an important feature of some of Australia’s most iconic buildings, the daring Steeplejacks played a crucial role in their construction and maintenance. As skilled craftsmen, they completed the most difficult work on the highest towers, oblivious to vertigo, gravity and mortality.
This is a wine for the scribes, pale straw and green hue, aromas of peach, ripe melon and honey- suckle, a full, soft, stone fruit palate of peaches and nectarines intermingled with rockmelon, creamy texture and a lingering lime citrus finish.
