The Bard Chardonnay

The BARD range celebrates the work of Australia’s best known lyric poet John Shaw Neilson who was raised in the cottage on the Hollick Neilson’s Block vineyard. Revered by his peers in the world of literature, Neilson was born in Penola in 1872, and it is thought that much of the imagery in his poems was conjured up during his childhood experiences in the swampy bushland around Coonawarra.

The long mild growing season in Coonawarra provides the ideal climate for Chardonnay. Typically picked at the coolest time of the day to preserve the lively fresh white peach, honeydew and cashew nuts flavours. We recommend cellaring this wine for up to three years.

Ripe peach and toasty, malty oak give this a
particularly sweet, soft, sun-drenched personality.'
