Winery & Vintage Info

Petaluma's flagship yellow label Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay showcases the distinctiveness of our distinguished sites in Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills and Coonawarra South Australia. These wines can be enjoyed upon their release however, they reward those patient enough to carefully cellar them and enjoy with generous bottle age.

The 2021 Chardonnay fruit was handpicked transported from the Piccadilly Valley to the nearby winery just out of Woodside before de-stemming, crushing and chilling to tank presses. The skins were pressed and the resultant juices cold settled for a week, before seeding with a chosen yeast to conduct the primary (alcoholic) fermentation. The seeded juices were then transferred immediately to barrel.

Approaching sugar dryness the barrels were inoculated with bacteria to encourage the malo-lactic fermentation (MLF), the conversion of hard malic acid to softer lactic acid. At the completion of MLF the barrels were given a dose of sulphur dioxide, topped and allowed to rest.

After about 9 months in oak the components were barrel selected, blended, stabilised, filtered and bottled.
