Region: Eden Valley SA
Established in 1972, Mountadam was founded by the late David Wynn, without question one of the most significant contributors to the Australian wine industry and an important part of the Mountadam story. In selecting the land for the Mountadam vineyard, Wynn was the first to recognise the potential of a cool, elevated site to produce wines of great elegance and structure, and chose an area high above the Eden Valley, which he named High Eden. At 550m above sea level, Mountadam is in fact the most elevated vineyard in South Australia.
This wine has a persistent and fine stream of small bubbles. The wine has a rich green colour and hints of salmon pink associated with wines that have a higher percentage of Pinot Noir. The aroma is of ripe figs, strawberries and crisp ripe fragrant apples complemented with very subtle yeast characters reminiscent of freshly baked dough. The flavour is complex and rich with a dry delicate finish. There are elegant ripe fruit characters of quince, strawberries and melons enmeshed around a crisp citrus core with a mild nutty and slightly creamy length of flavour.
