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.
