Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Hand-picked before most was destemmed, crushed and pressed (94%). A small portion (6%) from Shed Block in Summertown was chilled and then whole bunch pressed. The juices were cold settled for a week and then seeded with the chosen yeast strains to conduct the alcoholic fermentation. The seeded juices were then transferred to barrel. The oak used were mainly barriques, overall, 40% of the barrels used were new French oak. After malo-lactic fermentation, the wine stayed in barrel for 8 months.

The 2016 Petaluma Piccadilly Chardonnay is a full flavoured, richly textured wine. Lemon curd, white peach and nectarine dominate the wine. Grapefruit and crunchy ripe apple complement the creamy barrel ferment complexity, cashews and butter softening out the high natural acid."
95/100 Decanter World Wine Awards 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Very expressive and likeable nose, grilled toast, nuts, honeysuckle, lees notes, lemon and sweet spice. Full-bodied palate, toasty oak, refreshing acidity and very good persistence."
94/100 nicks.com.au (2016 Vintage)
"This wine was barrel fermented in 40% new French oak barriques, hogsheads and 60% older French oak barrels with partial malolactic fermentation. Brilliant pale straw colour with a faint tinge of green around the outskirts and a watery hue. Fragrant white peach, nectarine and citrus aromas are gently laced with dried honey characters followed by subtle nougat and spice notes. Medium bodied with a generous yet elegant mouthfeel and vibrant finish the palate features white peach and nectarine flavours tied to dried honey and cashew with a spicy finish. Aftertaste of spicy white peaches, nectarines, citrusy dried honey and cashew."
