Paulett Polish Hill Chardonnay

Paulett Polish Hill Chardonnay

Paulett Polish Hill Chardonnay

A lightly oaked Chardonnay from Clare Valley in South Australia. A beautiful gold in colour, with aromas of ripe peach and nectarines. The palate is silky with lovely citrus and stone fruit flavours and well integrated oak which gives weight, structure and notes of vanilla and honey. The weight of the wine is perfectly balanced by the refreshing acidity which leads into a subtle, yet lasting finish.

2018 POLISH HILL RIVER CHARDONNAY
CLASSIC POLISH HILL RIVER RANGE
100% Chardonnay
Polish Hill River in the Clare Valley
The 2017 – 2018 growing season was a contrast to the 2016 – 2017 growing season. Reduced soil
moisture led to reduced yields but provided periods of mild vine stress and high quality fruit. At
Paulett Wines we do not irrigate the vines and their root structure has developed to withstand
irregular rainfall, heat waves and drought conditions superior to irrigated vineyards.

“Sometimes you just want a dinner guest that fits in with your motley crew of mates & family
members: a people pleaser with charm and grace, enough depth to hold a decent conversation,
but not so much attitude they split a room. This Chardaonny ids a winner on all fronts. There’s
stonefruit & honeysuckle welcome with a touch of citrus and a touch of french oak and a clean
sharp acidic finish. A great addition to the table.”

Paulett Wines

About 1 ½ hours drive north from Adelaide is the beautiful Polish Hill River sub-region of the Clare Valley , home to Neil and Alison Paulett and their winery. The Polish Hill River region was named after the Polish Settlers of the mid 1800’s. The area is blessed with a climate ideal for premium grape growing and the combination of consistently good winter rains, hot summers tempered by cool nights and a long ripening period produces grapes of exceptional flavours and balance.
Rated by Halliday as a 5 star winery

South Australia

South Australia is the largest wine producing state of Australia. It may be surprising to most that the Riverland region is the state’s largest grape producing area. The Barossa Valley is famed for its full-bodied, rich, ripe and generous reds. The Coonawarra is internationally renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon (and prized ‘terra rossa’ soils). Padthaway, McLaren Vale, and the Clare Valley all make major contributions, and the importance of the Adelaide Hills is rapidly increasing.
