Taking its name from the southerly breeze that sweeps in from the nearby Ocean most afternoons and cools down the vines in across South Australia, The Southerly wines aim to show varietal typicity and exceptional value for money.
Blended by boutique winery The Lane, the grapes are sourced from a selection of small grower vineyards in Padthaway, a region that has earned quite a reputation for its pristine and pure fruit Chardonnays and is regularly associated with premium quality wine. Grapes have been selected for their combination of structure, elegance and delicate flavours, alongside richer, riper fruit characteristics. The climate which can be described as Mediterranean, with warm, dry summers and cool nights, helps with grape quality in two important ways. First, by allowing the grapes to build all-important acids that keep the final wine fresh and balanced. Second by slowing down ripening leads to the development of more subtle and delicate flavours.
The Lane family winery, set 450m high in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia is the brainchild of well-known Aussie winemaker John Edwards. His long-held dream was to produce Australian wines with true elegance, bringing together the sun-kissed exuberance of Aussie fruit with the refined structure typical of Old World classics.
