Winemaker's Notes:

The famous Aussie Chook Raffle is the weekly fundraising raffle where for a buck, you might win a frozen chook (chicken) or just about anything the organizer can scrounge up! Shoofly's Adelaide Hills Chardonnay is crafted with a touch more care, using carefully ripened fruit with just a touch of oak and a dash of Riesling and Verdelho to give bright, juicy flavors reminiscent of grapefruit and melon. On the nose, this zippy Chardonnay offers aromas of tropical fruit, peaches and melon while on the palate; grapefruit and lemon zest are complemented by zingy acidity.
