Vintage Notes: A blend of three clones of Chardonnay - all shoot thinned early in the season to enhance vine balance, even ripening and focus flavour concentration. Cool south facing sites provide fresh acidity through moderate growing conditions.
Halliday Wine Companion 2018
Score: 90 Points
Wine review: 'The cool heights of The Lane Vineyard bless chardonnay with spicy red apple and crunchy lemon character, well complemented with the toasty, biscuity, honeyed complexity of lees age and a portion of maturation in large old puncheons and foudres. A dosage of 8g/l is well integrated on a long finish. The result is an appealing and value-for-money Adelaide Hills fizz.'
