Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon are vinified for a fortnight in open top fermenters while being gently pumped over to treat the fermenting juices back into the skins, extracting flavour and just the right amount of tannins. Upon completion, components are matured in a selection of fine oak barrels to integrate fruit characters and tame the firm Cabernet tannins.
 
Purple coloured with darker hues. Currants, strawberries and plum seasoned by varietal green leaf characters behind the deep blue berry fragrances. A well integrated palate of lively varietal fruit flavours, black cherry, cassis, cocoa and plums supported by subtle hints of vanillin, tobacco and fennel. A dry, lingering finish with fine cleansing acidity makes Mountadam the perfect match to braised beef and wide ribbon tomato pasta.

Fully mature vines, cooler sites and access to crucial water gives Mountadam the edge. Chardonnay is sourced from the Mountadam estate property near the historic Boehm Springs Reserve, a nesting ground for Wedge Tail Eagles, the Mountadam logo. Sitting at an altitude of over 400 metres above sea level the vines grow in quartz rich sandy loams formed from the underlying schist bedrock. Picking grapes throughout the cool of early morning followed by a gentle pressing and a long cool four weeks of fermentation with natural cultured yeast helps retain maximum grape flavours. Parcels are selected which can best display the intensity of Chardonnay within the context of a vibrantly unoaked wine.
 
A pale green colour. Aromas of tropical fruit, rich apricot and ripe nectarine, layered with the complexity associated from a traditional vinification. Intense lively aromas of ripe peach and melon carry through on the palate with distinctly fresh acidity typical of cool climate Chardonnay. A long finish with lingering fruit characters and racy acidity. To accompany chicken caesar or grilled fresh water fishes.

The Mountadam site was selected by founder Adam Wynn for it's myriad of interesting meso climates and geological formations. The two vineyards from the Barossa floor at Greenock Creek and Nuriootpa have had a long association with Mountadam. They are both over forty years old, family owned and have always been hand tended. Fermented over the course of two or three weeks, juices are drained from skins daily and recombined to assist in extracting colour and flavour. Each component is vinified separately and assessed to create a wine which shows a balance of fruit and tannin, alcohol and length of flavour. Mountadam is aged for a year or more in a combination of new and prior use French oak barriques.
 
A deep red colour with vibrant purple tinges. The primary aromas are of cracked pepper and dark ripe plums with subtle spicy smokiness. Flavours are of cherry, dark chocolate and vanilla, tantalizingly sweet, creamy characters from the oak polishing out the spice, a firm tannin structure and persistent length of flavour.

Mountadam vineyards were re-established as part of a deeply personal project by one of Australia's most entrepreneurial winemaking dynasties. The cool climes of High Eden Ridge, the large clonal variation and the very different aspects of the Mountadam blocks necessitate careful attention to the ripening of fruit. Fruit is harvested throughout the chill of night and gently pressed, juice are fermented in an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak barriques and treated to the occasional lees stirring battonage, completion of malolactic, racked and returned, followed by a year's maturation and final racking before assemblage.
 
Light golden hue. Classic Chardonnay fruit aromas of peach, nectarine and nashi pear. A rich barrel ferment palate of grilled nuts with clove and nutmeg spice supported by a citrus grapefruit core, all contributing to the immense flavour and length. Match with fried whiting fillets, camembert or recipes which call for white truffle.
Mountadam Marble Hill Chardonnay
Barossa Eden
Available in cartons of six
Marble Hill was a stately old manor in the Adelaide Hills, the colonial Governor’s summer residence. Planted to a unique clone of Burgundy Chardonuet in the 1860s, the ancient vines came to the attention of the legendery David Wynn, who removed cuttings back to Mountadam, the oldest cool climate Chardonnay vines on the continent. The original stocks in Burgundy were wiped out by phylloxera and Marble Hill was destroyed by fire in the 1950s. There truly is no Chardonnay in the world like Marble Hill.

Established in 1972 as one of Australia's pioneer chardonnay producers, Mountadam was founded by the late David Wynn, a true visionary of the Australian Wine Industry

Mountadam is in the Eden Valley which neighbours the Barossa Valley. It takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes to reach the Mountadam Winery from Adelaide or 20 minutes from the larger towns of the Barossa Valley such as Angaston or Tanunda. The property was identified after David's exhaustive search of potential sites throughout South Eastern Australia.

Mountadam

David's extensive experience in viticulture and wine production, honed during his days at the Wynn family's estate at Connawarra, had given him a keen eye for the perfect site, and he finally settled on the land that is now Mountadam.

The site selection was based on three critical factors, firstly the stability of climate. Grape growing, like growing any fresh produce, is subject to the weather. Either too little or too much rain at the wrong time can cause ripening and disease problems. Mountadam experiences little or no rain during the critical ripening period.

The cool climate was a critical factor. David Wynn knew that to produce elegant yet powerful wines, the vines should not be subject to the stress of hot conditions. At 550 metres above sea level, it is sufficiently cool to preserve the delicate flavours of the grape through-out its entire ripening process.

Well drained soils also played a major role in the selection of the winegrowing property. Shallow soils over base rock provide perfect drainage and soil dryness to minimise vigour and maximise fruit concentration. Preparations for planting Mountadam commenced in 1970 with many years spent developing and improving the property.

Mountadam wines are always made from the best portion of fruit available from the winery's source vineyards in the Eden and Barossa Valleys. The estate provides a myriad of interesting meso climates and geological formations. Importantly, the various sites which cling the the hillsides and high valleys have been chosen for their true continental climate with warm sunny days and cool evenings. The complex microclimates combined with the classic soils and geologies, provides the Mountadam winemakers with an array of palates from which to craft the superb wines. Mountadam wines are always crafted in honour of the winery's patriarch, David Wynn, the founder of Mountadam and one of the great visionaries of the Australian wine industry

"One of the leading small wineries, founded by David Wynn and run by winemaker son Adam Wynn, initially offering only the Mountadam range at relatively high prices. The subsequent development of the three ranges of wines has been very successful, judged both by the winemaking and wine-marketing viewpoint. Mountadam has built up an extensive export network over many years, This will doubtless be strengthened following the acquisition of Mountadam!" -Winepros.com.au
