Mark's Vineyard C3 Chardonnay 2017 (12 x 750mL) Adelaide Hills, SA

Description:

This single vineyard has become one of Australia’s most respected cool climate Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay producers. Our parcels of fruit receive high input viticulture, hand-pruning, shoot thinning, leaf plucking, bunch thinning, multiple wire-lifts, low cropping levels and hand picking.

The Vineyard is under the ownership of Matthew Hill-Smith and his daughter Christobel, representing seven generations of continuous Hill-Smith family winemaking since 1849.

C3 refers to the three clones of chardonnay used in this blend, Bernard 95, Mendoza and Bernard 76. Handpicked and chilled overnight before whole bunch pressing. The parcels are then fermented with frequent yeast lees stirring in a mixture of old and new French barrels for approximately 11 months. The Bernard clone gives exceptional acid with Mendoza filling out the middle palate.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

MARKO’s Vineyard was established in 1994 by Mark and Margie Hill Smith. The single vineyard is one of Australia’s most respected producers of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay and more recently Shiraz and Pinot Gris.

Situated in the Adelaide Hills just outside the town of Woodside at an elevation of 410 metres.Total plantings – 27.8 ha with a variety of soil types ranging from shaly, sandy, free-draining, high in iron stone and quartz to deep sandy loams hosting four different grape varieties, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Pinot Gris (four different clones of Chardonnay, I10V1, Bernard 76, Mendoza and Bernard 95). Our parcels of fruit receive high input viticulture, hand-pruning, shoot thinning, lateral thinning, leaf plucking, bunch-thinning, multiple wire lifts to manage the canopy, low cropping levels and hand-picking. Our holistic viticulture approach includes running sheep in the vineyard in the winter to minimise the use of sprays and soil compaction. .
