Petaluma Chardonnay 2009

Brina Crozer was one of the first to plant a vineyard in the Adelaide hills and he is definitely the first to plant chardonnay.  While this doesn't come from the Tiers vineyard is does come from seven vineyard around the area.  You could consider him as one of the visionaries in the wine-making business.

There is a massive oak influence running through this wine but the fruit seems to hold its own. Its a war at the moment between peaches and nectarines and the nuts and spice.  I did love the complexity of this beast but you need to think about what you could pair with this. I had it with beggars chicken but it was a little too much for the dish.
