The Beklyn Chardonnay comes from a single vineyard on Talc Hill in the Adelaide hills. A cool climate Chardonnay it is a contemporary and expressive style of varietal. Fermented on solids to produce crème brulee notes on the palate which combine with white peach fruit and roasted cashew, all enhanced by the use of French oak maturation for 6 months the wine finishes with balanced natural acidity.
In 2002 Mark and Rebekah Shaw built their family home, with three young children, on their property in Currency Creek on the Southern Fleurieu Peninsula. Here their love for producing wine took flight and they planted their first vineyard. The property was named Beklyn meaning “Pretty Brook” which derives from the passage of water flowing through the Beklyn Estate. After years of anticipation their dream to produce an individually hand-crafted wine from their own vineyard has had realised with the 2018 Beklyn Shiraz. The wine it expresses the very best attributes of the Currency Creek region. Mark and Rebekah hope you enjoy the ‘fruits’ of our labour as much as they do.
