Chardonnay hasn’t always been an easy fit in the Barossa. Although there continue to be fine expressive examples grown and crafted in the upper reaches of Eden Valley, most Chardonnay growers in our region are grateful for the continued consumer demand for verjuice.

Over many years of running fine wine lists tailored for the discerning winemakers in our region, I discovered that Chardonnay, even more that Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo attracted the most interest, curiosity, argument and absolute reverence.

It is with great pleasure that I’m pulling some extraordinary Chardonnays from the cellar. Bottles and magnums of Champagne, Chablis, Puligny Montrachet, Macon from some of my favourite producers. And who better to guide us through the innerworkings of this ‘winemaker’s grape’ than two of our favourite SA Chardonnay practitioners: Duane Coates and Michael Hall.

Sam Smith and Emily Thomas are in Chardonnay-collaboration mode. Exploring menu possibilities.

This will be special. Tickets are already selling quickly…

A Journey to Etna, 11 November

Join us at Otherness as we go on ‘A Journey to Etna’ with Sam Scott of La Prova to showcase some of the finest and rarest Etna wines by Tenuta di Fessina, and the Adelaide Hills, sourced through Vinify Wine Co. These wines are a benchmark of their respective terroirs. The utter delight they incite upon drinking and the compelling way in which they come to be is reason enough to celebrate these two exceptional producers.

Tickets are very limited and also includes dinner by Sam Smith.

Date: Friday, 11 November
Time: 6:30pm
Address: 38 Murray Street, Angaston, SA 5353
Cost: $190 (includes dinner by Sam Smith)

More on Tenuta di Fessina wines
Tenuta di Fessina’s mesmerising whites are truly the most limpid manifestation of Carricante, particularly from the ‘A’Puddara’ cru. As for the reds, they vividly embody the northern reaches of Etna; at once an imposing and delicate interpretation of the indigenous Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio that thrive in this ominous territory. Through years perfecting her craft, Maestrelli successfully harnessed the earth, fire, and ice which shaped this improbable Sicilian haven of fine wine.
