About The Wine
Charlotte Hardy is widening her range from her small, homely winery in the beautiful Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills.
The latest addition to her boutique label comes in the form of a Chardonnay named for her baby daughter, Ada Pixie Grace. This is Chardonnay from a single vineyard, whole-bunch pressed and sent to new French oak for fermentation.
The wine spends only a short time in oak, a kiss of the sweetness and spice of new wood without it overpowering the fruit.
It's elegant and gentle Chardonnay with a graceful disposition.
About Charlotte Dalton
Charlotte (Dalton) Hardy has travelled the world on a wine odyssey only to find herself settled down in amongst the lush landscape of the Basket Range in the Adelaide Hills.
Classically trained but with an eye to a more hands-off approach, Charlotte is making only small batches of wine as she raises a family in the Hills.
She crafts her wines with an expert hand, bringing each to bottle with as little additions as possible. She loves Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Semillon - each variety sings in her hands.
The Charlotte Dalton wines are pure, effortless and have a distinct gentleness about them, just like their maker.
