Hamish and Kate Laurie continue a five generation winemaking tradition. Devoted to the high altitude sites of the Adelaide Hills and with Kate’s French oenology training the wines they produce are at once traditional and contemporary. With a fiery passion to create premium bottle fermented and aged sparkling together with aromatic whites that can genuinely cellar, their signature style is focussed, textural, restrained and balanced. At Deviation Road every sip reveals a little of this mystery; a taste of the terroir, a glimpse at the season, a hint of the science and a wink to the heritage that crafts its existence.
Aromas of white stone fruits, citrus and flint are complemented with toasted nut characters on the palate. High altitude sites produce premium fruit with medium weight which is balanced with lively acidity giving elegance and a lingering finish.
Hewn from a symphony of clones including 26% Mendoza, an abstemious yielder of concentrated flavours, this stunning chardonnay was hand-harvested and aged for 12 months in French oak, 25% new. What I like about it is the nutty warmth. Plenty flavoursome, with nectarine and peach in the back seat, riding shotgun to nougat, toasted hazelnut and creamy cashew flavours. Very fine. Stunning length and intensity. Kerpow! Drink to: 2026; Price: $45.00; Date Tasted: Dec 2018; Alcohol: 12.5%; Rating: 98 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
