Lobethal Road 'Bacchant' Chardonnay 2017

The Lobethal Road range feels "unreasonably" cheap to me! Huge focus on careful sustainable winemaking and indeed the only Australian winery I can think of to be genuinely "off-the-grid". Oh year....a lazy 96pts from Halliday as well!

More Information

Lobethal Road stands alone in the north-east corner of the Adelaide Hills wine region between the heritage villages of Lobethal and Mount Torrens.

The vineyard, at 475m above sea level, was first planted in 1998 and now generously provides esteemed, multi-award-winning Hills fruits such as Chardonnay and Shiraz as well as contemporary styles such as Tempranillo, Graciano and the first plantings in the region of the revered French Rhone Valley white grape, Roussanne. Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris come from their Woodside vineyard, with additional fruit being sourced from neighbouring Hills' sites.

The entire site of the Mount Torrens vineyard and cellar door operates off the grid, supplying its own water as well as generating all its power by solar energy. Production 'miles' are minimal with their winemaking carried out just a kilometre down the road.

"Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild yeast-open fermented, matured in French barriques (50% new). A complex bouquet, part ex fruit, part wild fermentation. Grapefruit is to the fore on the long palate, which is highly focused and disciplined." 96pts - James Halliday - Wine Companion
