The Adelaide Hills is our Ithaca – our home and our constant source of inspiration. Our cool climate home is the ideal terroir for the Chardonnay grape, the high altitude, ancient soils and pristine air produce chardonnay grapes with amazing purity of fruit. Our aim is to craft a wine that reflects the variety, vineyard and vintage, confirming the affinity of Chardonnay with the Hills.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The nose is powerful and complex with pure fruit characters of white nectarine and lemon blossom complemented by complex secondary aromatics of nutty oak.

Palate

Generous palate weight. Flavours of white nectarine and are complemented by more secondary characters of oak and lees. Exceptional length and good natural acidity.

Cellaring

4-6 years, with age the wine will continue to soften building in body, texture and complexity.

Winery Profile

5 Red Star Winery - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2014

Nepenthe quickly established its reputation as a producer of high quality wines, but when founder Ed Tweddell died unexpectedly in 2006, the business was purchased by McGuigan Simeon the following year. The winery was closed in 09, and winemaking operations transferred to Australian Vintage, McGuigan Simeons principal SA winery. (The Nepenthe winery has since been purchased by Peter Leske and Mark Kozned, and provides contract winemaking services via their Revenir venture.) Nepenthe has over 100ha of close-planted vineyards spread over four vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, with an exotic array of varieties. Exports to the UK, the US and other major markets.James Halliday
