Lethbridge Allegra Chardonnay: 2004 – 2015

Vineyard is the Rebenberg (Mt Duneed) vineyard, planted by Ken & Joy Campbell in 1968 to Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon (Malbec & Cabernet were later grafted over to Shiraz). The Chardonnay was added in 1981 planted to P58 and a mixture of Bernard Clones. In regards to winemaking, they’re pretty much the same: fully barrel-fermented in new French oak, full malolactic and aged in 100% new French oak for between 11-15 months.
Opened in brackets of 4 from oldest to youngest. All wines are available, though some are in limited quantities (30-36 bottles). A big thank you to Lethbridge for sending the wines (even though it took me nearly six months to get to them).
