Chateau Comme ci Comme ca - 2021 Vin Blanc

2021 Vin Blanc

Adelaide Hills, South Australia

Skin fermented Chardonnay that electrifies with acid. Fresh lemon, green mango, plantain and custard. A trip! The fruit is from Magpie Springs farm in Hope Valley on the southern range of the Adelaide Hills and is farmed by Steve Thomas. Surrounded by big gum trees, afternoon sea breezes come over Willunga hill straight into the vineyard which sits on sandy loam, clay and ironstone.

It was only a matter of time before the glorious and cheeky Aaron Fenwick, stalwart and co-owner of the natural wine mecca Summertown Aristologist, applied all of those years serving and chatting booze to making the good stuff. Surrounded by the loving and knowledgeable winemaking community within the Adelaide Hills, Aaron takes fruit from a number of sites that are favoured by some of our faves, including cult maker/grower, Anton Van Klopper of Lucy Margaux. He now works intimately with van Klopper, in the cellar and additionally planting over 6000 vines around the Basket Range, these which will become the focus of the label in the coming years. The wines are all about fun, experimentation, accessibility and community.
