2022 K1 Chardonnay

By K1


Adelaide Hills

Story: K1 Chardonnay is styled to accentuate the characters of Kuitpo’s cool growing conditions and terroir. The fruit is gently handled to ensure aromatics are retained, with French oak and partial malolactic fermentation used to enhance the wine’s purity of fruit character.

Vintage: 2022 Higher than average rainfall over winter followed by a warm and dry spring resulting in even budburst and a textbook start for the vintage. A cool but relatively dry summer gave us beautiful even ripening conditions. This slow ripening allows great flavour development and retention of natural acidity.

Nose: The nose offers a beautifully complex combination of white and yellow stone fruits, green apples, and almonds.

Palate: The palate is delightfully smooth and complex with lingering fruity notes of white peaches and green apples supported by mineral undertones.

Pairing: Try with chicken dishes such as Moroccan chicken tagine with preserved lemon and green olive cous cous. 

Cellaring: Drink now or to  2027
