Beltana is produced using 100% Chardonnay grapes selected from the cool, high altitude slopes in the Adelaide Hills. The finest parcels with the greatest ageing potential are selected to make the Beltana, which is one of our ‘Small Batch Series’ wines. The 2015 release has incredible purity, with lemon and patisserie notes layered over aromas of green apple, preserved lemon and flint. A medium dosage balances the textural complexity on palate with our signature crisp, mouth-watering finish. A persistent fine bead and zesty sherbet gives extra lift to these delicious aromas and flavours.

A wet winter and dry growing season produced fruit with excellent ripeness and acid balance. Beltana was picked from the highest and coolest site we source from in the Piccadilly Valley. The fruit was picked early so it retained excellent natural acidity and didn’t accumulate sugars too quickly. Our hand-picking team selected bunches from the Eastern side primarily, and those from deep within the canopy.
The juice for this wine was fermented in 100% stainless steel to preserve freshness and fruit purity, and underwent full malolactic ferment to soften the high acid level from this site. the Beltana is a snapshot of what Chardonnay delivers from great sites in the Adelaide Hills from vintage to vintage.
