First Village

First Village Chardonnay 2021

With fruit from the high Eden Valley and Barossa Valley this Chardonnay displays bright citrus and apple fruit profiles with a clean and juicy plate of orchard fruits, subtle spicy oak and textural length.


2021 provided us with exceptional conditions for growing high quality grapes. It was one of those years that had a little bit of everything but not too much of anything. We had good winter and spring rains with total rainfall for 2020 being right on the money for a normal average Barossa year (around 450-500mm). This lead to good fruiting conditions and a much more balanced yield than previous, drier years. The growing season then proceeded to give some nice warm conditions. Critically, the evening and night temperatures were always on the cooler side
