2018 Cooke Bros Schoenthal Chardonnay
|Region||Adelaide Hills, SA|
|Status||Sourced fruit, sustainable practices|
A new venture from Winemaker and Viticulturist Ben Cooke in collaboration with his brothers Jason, and Simon. Ben and his partner Charlotte Hardy (Charlotte Dalton Wines) form quite the formidable duo and powerhouse, winemaking family. The Cooke Brothers wines are a celebration of sites that produce unique and distinct fruit worthy of becoming single-vineyard wines. Ben believes that the best wines are made in the vineyard, Careful pruning, restriction of yields and canopy management whilst respecting nature and the soils. Doing the hard work in the vineyards allows for a hands-off approach in the winery.
