How's it taste?

Golden yellow straw, this has a nutty, honey edged nose and palate, the flavours heading towards more butterscotch before a round finish.

How was it made?

Our Burgundian style Chardonnay is a wine of passion. Fruit was chosen from our French clone using only select parcels. Handpicked in the early morning, with wild yeast and malolactic fermentation. Battonage at 2 week intervals using 30% new French barriques from Burgundy and Bordeaux spending 18 months in oak.

Who made it?

Established in 2002 by Dr. John Tomich and his wife, Vicki, this Adelaide Hills winery has a remarkable reputation for innovation and harnessing some of the best winemaking talent in the country. The fruit is sourced from their own 200 acres of vines located in the very cool Onkaparinga Valley in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. It is the largest vineyard in the region and is farmed using sustainable practices. Today, Tomich Wines is still family owned and operated with John's son, Randal Tomich, heading up the winemaking duties alongside consultant winemaker Ben Riggs.
