About

Casa Freschi cleverly manage two vineyards to add dimension and diversity to their portfolio. Their Langhorne Creek offerings produce the structural reds (Cabernet, Shiraz, Nebbiolo), the Adelaide Hills vineyard is all about the cool climate whites.

This is their flagship 2014 Chardonnay. It’s classic, elegant cool-climate Chardonnay with intensely flavoured fruit backed up by quality oak.

Different styles of Chardonnay notoriously fall in and out of vogue but balanced, glorious Chardonnay like this, as James Halliday observed in his 96 point review, “will never go out of fashion.”

The Hills can produce dynamite fruit when on song, and with the yields down and quality up in a vintage like 2014, the result can be a beautiful thing.

What It Tastes Like

“Yields were down 66%. What there is of the wine is smashingly good; put it in your mouth and it’s like bugles on Anzac Day, the fruit singing proud and clear, the oak sure of its role, the trail of flavour out through the finish an enduring reminder. It’s stunning in a way that will never go out of fashion.” - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
