About The Wine
The Fighting Gully Road Chardonnay has been sourced from the Smith's Vineyard, the first plantings in the Beechworth region of the modern era.
The vineyard is tended by Mark Walpole, one of the most renowned viticulturalists, not only in Beechworth, but the entire country. Walpole has done considerable work to give the Smith's vineyard a new lease on life, painstakingly nurturing these old vines back to peak production and the results are excellent.
This is the quintessential high-impact Beechworth Chardonnay. Full of sulphide and funk and with the powerful fruit to back it up. Winemaker Adrian Rodda churning out a beauty here in 2016.
