Winery & Vintage Info

Petaluma is committed to producing the very best wines from South Australia’s most distinguished viticultural areas.

The fruit was transferred to Petaluma's winery near Woodside in the Adelaide Hills. It was de-stemmed, crushed and chilled and the juice separated from skins and seeds in air bag tank presses. This juice was then cold settled for a few days, before racking the partially clarified juice into our chosen yeast culture to conduct the alcoholic fermentation.

Petaluma White Label Chardonnay 2023 vintage fermentation was conducted in a combination of stainless steel tanks and a French Oak barriques, hogsheads and puncheons. Towards the end of primary fermentation, the wines were inoculated with bacteria to encourage the malo-lactic fermentation (MLF), which is the conversion of hard malic acid to softer lactic acid. 100% of the wine underwent partial conversion. The MLF also complexes the wine, adding creaminess and hints of butter.

All components were then matured in barrel for 8 months, slowly settled and clarified. In December the wines were emptied from oak and blended, cold settled, filtered and bottled. Winery Notes
