Thievin Devlin, Chardonnay
So the story goes, there was an Irishman called Paddy set up on the banks of the Murray peddling grog to the cattlemen passing his way.
He tired of the standard diet of Murray fish, and helped himself to the cattle being overlanded past his door.
This did not earn him many friends, instead landing him in an early – and shallow – grave with three bullet holes through his skull.
And now? Now his ghost lives on in our wines.
REGION South Australia
WINEMAKING Picked in the cool of the evening at optimal ripeness, the wine was tank fermented to dry to maintain fruit intensity and freshness. The wine was bottled soon after finishing ferment, fined and filtered to preserve the fresh fruit flavours from the vine to the glass.
COLOUR Pale straw with green tinge
AROMA Freshly cut melon and perfumed lemon and lime with a hint of vanilla highlight this vintage of Chardonnay.
PALATE A refreshing palate of green apple, lime, stone fruits and melon with a lingering mouthfeel. Served chilled with seafood, fresh salads and stir fry dishes.
