Winemaking
The fruit for the Hedonist Chardonnay is grown in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia. Warm summer days are cooled by evening sea breezes from St. Vincents Gulf, which lies in a close proximity to the West. The soil is rich loam over clay with patches of underlying limestone. Harvested in early March, the fruit was softly pressed in batches to prevent maceration of the skins and reduce solid content in the juice. After cold settling at 10 degrees for 24 hours, the juice was racked off solids to begin fermentation at 16 degrees for 10 days. After settling it was racked, cold stabilized and prepared for bottling.

Tasting Note
Pale yellow in colour with green hues. The nose offers a bouquet of tropical fruits, lime and orange blossom. On the palate the wine is full flavoured with great length and crisp acidity. Lime juice, spice, melon and nectarine fruit characters are all present.

Serving Suggestion
Creamy and well structured thanks to the Chardonnay, yet with floral aromas provided by Viognier, this wine greatly matches grilled swordfish, clam chowder and many creamy chicken preparations (ie. chicken-stuffed avocado, chicken with mushroom sauce). Remarkable with seafood and herbs risottos.
