Ballast Stone Chardonnay 2007
Peach, melon and butterscotch. The subtle use of French Oak gives this wine richness and complexity, but still allows the fruit characters and clean finish to show through.
In the 1800s Goolwa was the most important river port in South Australia linked by rail to Port Elliot, where sailing ships unloaded ballast stone to refill their holds with wool and grain for their return trip to England. Buildings on Ballast Stone Estate Vineyards are made from this stone.
