The 2023 Petaluma Yellow Label Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay is pale straw with a green tinge. Aromas of intense lemon citrus with complex nutty cashew and subtle buttered toast.

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 Piccadilly Valley is the coolest viticultural region in South Australia. Tucked in behind Mount Lofty, the Piccadilly Valley is a jigsaw of sub-valleys with an underlying geology up to 1,800 million years old. Planted on relatively steep north and east facing slopes (up to 550m in altitude), the vines receive the full benefit of the warming early mornings. These distinguished vineyards favour delicate Chardonnay flavours and high natural acid.

Vintage 2023 in the Adelaide Hills experienced a cool and long ripening season with intermittent rain resulted in extended ripening with wines that were more towards the bright citrus than broader melon and peach. The cool wet conditions provided viticultural challenges, but well managed sites like those in Piccadilly delivered stunning fruit for complex Chardonnay.

Barrel fermentation on heavy solids followed by extended lees stirring with extended ageing on lees.
