2017 Commune of Buttons Clover Chardonnay

Basket Range, Adelaide Hills, SA

Glorious small-batch, lo-fi Chardonnay from Adelaide Hills rogues, Commune of Buttons.


Wines of Jura come to mind but the take home is that it is a beautiful wine in its own right.

About The Wine

Clover is a gently textural Chardonnay made from the Button's family vineyard.

It's made with 24 hours skin contact, pressed and sent to stainless tanks 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. 

Mike Bennie wrote, "winemaker Jasper Button is most intuitive and at ease with his chardonnay wines, I feel." and that's certainy evident in this release.

But it tells a quiet story about where it's from and the people who made it. And it's just awesome to drink.

About Commune of Buttons

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 fantastic. The wines are made naturally with only minimal sulphur additions and slow, gentle ferments. The Buttons wines are as loveable as the family who made them.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Lovely chardonnay comes from this site, and winemaker Jasper Button is most intuitive and at ease with his chardonnay wines, I feel. I recall seeing his ‘first work’ with the variety as the brand was coming alive, and had the character of the wines from barrel soldered into my mind. Whiffs of sea spray, lemongrass, ripe citrus, ginger. A beautiful start. The just medium weight wine feels immediately attractive, savoury edged, a white of freshness and bright personality. It also feels ‘cool’ (cold, in a way) and it’s a smooth ride in the palate, ultra fresh feeling with licks of savoury nuttiness, saline acidity, green apple crunch. There’s great length too. Wines of Jura come to mind but the take home is that it is a beautiful wine in its own right." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
