Sade is a gently textural Chardonnay made from the Button’s family vineyard.
It’s made with 24 hours skin contact, pressed and sent to old barrels to go wild. This has that distinctive ‘natural’ feel, whilst remaining clean and fresh the whole way down.
It’s not your average Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, that’s for sure. But it tells a quiet story about where it’s from and the people who made it. And it’s just awesome to drink.
What It Tastes Like
Smells of seaspray, grapefruit, green apple and lemon skin. It’s glossy texture, with a distinct ‘minerality’ through the palate. A kiss of gentle tannin keeps it crunchy through the finish. Cleansing. Refreshing. Crazy easy to drink.
Single Vineyard Estate Chardonnay. One day skin contact. Elegant and textural, lingering phenolics and acidity, ripe pears and apples.
Closure: Screw Cap
Bottle Size: 750ml
Alcohol: Drink Until: 2020
About the Producer
Commune of Buttons
We love the Commune of Buttons story and more importantly, we love the wines. Siblings Jasper and Sophie Button returned home a few years ago to help save their family vineyard, planted primarily to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay 20 years ago by their mother. They began restoring the site and transitioning to organic and biodynamic principles, and at some point decided that rather than sell off their prized grapes to others, they’d turn their hand to winemaking. Just a couple vintages in, the results have been fabulous. The wines are made very naturally with only minimal sulphur additions and slow, gentle ferments.
The Adelaide Hills may be the most energised wine region in the country. The sense of exploration and creativity amongst the tribe of talented young winemakers in this region is unparralelled. The Hills has become crucible of Australian wine talent, offering an array of varieties, from classics such as Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, to new varieties like Nebbiolo and Grüner Veltliner for the younger generation to play with. Every vintage brings new colour and complexity to the rich wine, food and produce culture of this cool climate region.
Australian Chardonnay is a seductive variety that comes in all shapes and sizes. From the toasty and voluptuous to the lean, flinty and minerally, there is a Chardonnay out there to suit everyone. Australia’s developing prowess with this variety has been marked by the international community with wine writers such as Jancis Robinson marvelling at the outstanding value to be had right across the country. The prestige brands of Margaret River offer wines of deep flavour and power, often crafting fuller-figured Chardonnay of outstanding quality. The cooler-climate wines from the Yarra Valley, Tasmania and the like are more focused and linear, building complexity around a backbone of pristine acidity. Whatever your preference, there is an Australian Chardonnay to enchant all comers.
