Description

When you read the heartbreaking stories of the vineyards lost in the Adelaide hills fire, Golding is always at the forefront. The birds eye images of the winery and green landscaped garden, a little vibrant oasis among the charred vines is almost unbelievable. On the 20th of Dec, Golding winery was reported as being ‘up in flames’, they lost most of their surrounding vineyards with only their winery’s barn, terrace and gardens remaining intact. Despite everything, their wine tasting room was open to the public a week later. This Chardonnay was grown on their Western Branch Vineyard, which were badly damaged in the fires. The grapes have seen 12 months on old and new French Oak, with full malolactic fermentation giving it a delicate roundness on the palate, creating a refined balanced Chardonnay.
