Mountadam Vineyards Eden Valley Sparkling Pinot Chardonnay

Vineyard: Mountadam Vineyards has long been recognised as one of Eden Valley's pinnacle vineyards. Established in the 1970's and mastering cool climate varieties such as Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewurztraminer before an array of red wine varieties took hold. The vineyard is situated in the High Eden region of the Barossa at an altitude of 550m, where the breezes and slow ripening micro-climate enable superior quality of wine grapes.
