The Adelaide Hills region in South Australia has become renowned for producing exceptional Chardonnay wines that capture the essence of its cool-climate terroir. With its elevated vineyards, crisp air, and diverse soils, the region provides an ideal canvas for crafting Chardonnays of elegance and complexity. These wines often display vibrant fruit flavors, a balanced acidity, and a distinctive minerality, making them sought after by wine enthusiasts worldwide.

The Gentle Folk 'Ashton' Chardonnay 2022 is a testament to the elegant and nuanced expression of Chardonnay. Crafted in a style that respects the varietal's natural character, this wine likely reflects a balance between fruit, acidity, and subtle oak influences, characteristic of modern Chardonnay winemaking. It promises to showcase the typical freshness and vibrancy of Chardonnay, with a potential for complexity and depth that develops beautifully in the glass.

In the glass, the wine reveals a pale, glistening golden hue, a visual ode to the Adelaide Hills' pristine landscapes.

The nose is a delicate interplay of fresh citrus, ripe green apples, and hints of white peaches. These bright fruit notes are harmoniously complemented by subtle hints of toasted almonds and a gentle whisper of oak, showcasing the wine's depth and complexity.

On the palate, the wine offers a harmonious blend of crisp acidity and ripe fruit flavors. Notes of citrus and orchard fruits dominate, intertwined with a subtle creaminess and a minerally backbone. The wine is medium-bodied, with a texture that balances richness with elegance, leading to a refined and persistent finish.

Food Pairing:

  1. Pulled Pork Croquettes with Manchego, Bechamel, Mesquite, and Tomato Chutney: The Chardonnay's balanced acidity and fruit profile will beautifully complement the richness of the pork and the creamy textures of the cheese and bechamel, while its nuanced flavors will enhance the tomato chutney.

  2. Black Barley with Asparagus, Honey Pecan, Pepita Seeds, Parsley, Goats’ Cheese, and Vinaigrette: The crispness and subtle fruitiness of the wine will pair well with the nutty and earthy flavors of the dish, and the smooth texture of the Chardonnay will harmonize with the tangy goats’ cheese, creating a delightful and flavorful pairing.
