Known for its excellent examples of cool climate Chardonnay, the Adelaide Hills wine region is once again hosting its month-long celebration in honour of the delicious variety – Chardonnay May.
Golding Wines, one of the region’s bustling family-owned cellar doors, will be marking the occasion with two new wine experiences: The Chardonnay Centre Stage experience, which features a limited release wine flight of award-winning wines in the Golding Tasting Room, and Effervescence – A Sparkling Experience, in collaboration with Croser at Petaluma.
The Tasting Room, situated within Golding’s stone barn in their Western Branch Vineyard, is where the contemporary and the rustic meet. Labelled the Best Small Producer at the 2021 Adelaide Hills Wine Show, have the chance to admire the ornate stone walls, wooden beams, and finishes, while sampling some of Golding’s finest drops.
The Chardonnay Centre Stage experience is a limited release wine flight, showcasing current and museum-release Chardonnays. The wine list is as follows:
- 2015 Marjorie Sparkling Blanc de Blancs
- 2021 The Exchange Chardonnay
- 2019 Rosie May Chardonnay ‘Museum Release’
- 2021 Rosie May Chardonnay
The Marjorie Blanc de Blancs presents delicate aromas of lemon and green apple with a creamy texture and toasted nut characters, finishing with a refreshing crispness.
The Exchange Chardonnay gives a little something different to the wine flight, providing aromas of nutmeg and spice, contrasting with its bright citrus and peach flavours.
Finally, the Rosie May Chardonnay varieties entice the senses with aromas of nectarine and spice, as well as bright stone fruit and jasmine flavours.
For only $30 per person, guests can enjoy that curated wine flight throughout the month of May, which comes with individually matched tasting accompaniments for a sublime Chardonnay experience. Each flight includes four wines and is equivalent to 1.5 standard drinks.
In addition to Golding Wines’ exemplary Chardonnay Centre Stage experience, Golding Wines is also joining forces with award-winning sparkling makers Croser at Petaluma for ‘Effervescence – A Sparkling Experience’.
The collaboration will be Golding Wines’ first curated sparkling focused flight and will give guests the opportunity to purchase wines usually unavailable to the public at exclusive prices.
The three-hour Effervescence event will allow guests to visit both stunning cellar doors, discover some of the most exceptional sparkling wines of the season, and sample some accompanying nibbles.
