Inspired by my brother’s love and mastery of this noble variety, the 2016 Brother‘s Ilk is tribute to Phil’s thinking, Theo and Jan Moskos’ Bernard 95 clone fruit and our hard graft in the winery. It’s a bit of old school smashed together with a lot of new thinking all wrapped up in a bloody tasty wine. Think of it as my favourite bit of the Adelaide Hills, crafted in the Barossa!
Single vineyard wine.
Bernard 95 Clone Chardonnay Grown on Theo and Jan Moskos’ Birdwood Vineyard.
Total production 2070 bottles
Pale green/gold straw
Plenty of white peach leanness over restrained and subtle high quality oak. A fresh layer of reserved lemon peel, fresh cream, slight toffee hints overlay yeasty complexity
Terrific line and length up front. Initially Minerally and lithe palate which with fresh white peach underpinned with lemon zest, creamy texture & a mouth-watering crisp finish.
