Three different regions, three masterful Chardonnays. Adrian Rodda makes great Chardonnay, doesn't matter where the grapes are sourced.  This Chardonnay is from the Baxendale vineyard high in the Alpine region, this is cool climate Chardonnay done well.

Adrian has been playing with the Baxendale Vineyard for a few vintages now and his access to the fruit came as a result of knowing the right people at the right time (similar to how things started with the Smiths Vineyard). With the time provided by the pandemic to extend the winemaking process (not just the Baxendale but all three wines), there has been a complete evolution of the Baxendale. Previous vintages needed 12 months to unwind and open up to showcase what an incredible wine it is. The '21 does that from the get go...

Aromas of oranges and yellow peach backed by the vaguest hint of smoked almonds. It delights on multiple levels. The palate is all about texture as much as flavour. An odd term but "chewy acids" carry the palate until a final drive into flinty minerality. The front palate is all peaches and the back palate is all grapefruit. Totally balanced. Wow! I love the Smiths Vineyard Chardonnay, but I am seriously loving this too.
