95 Points - Gary Walsh - The Wine Front
A pure and tightly wound wine showing the muscle and intensity of the low yielding Birdwood site, and the fragile acid line synonymous with fine, late ripening and deeply cool Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay. A shy and somewhat restrained nose exuding white flowers, green nectarine characters, and subtle hints of nougat and gingery wood spice. On the palate, a bedrock of chalky minerality supports a core of intense stone fruit, framing its lingering acidity.
The first release from the Adelaide Hills, this is a knockout Chardonnay and is highly recommended. Scott
Some tasteful struck match, white peach, grapefruit, a light application of cinnamon and spicy biscuit oak, a little bit of white flower perfume and nougat. Bright, quite pretty, crushed rock and preserved lemon, and a finish of crunchiness and excellent length. All just so. Refined, yet flavoursome.
Ministry of Clouds is a toast to the pursuit of a life well-lived, and those who savour the freedom it affords. Our business was borne of this desire – to carve out our own path by relinquishing the security of the past and embracing the unpredictability of life.
The partnership of two corporate refugees, our wines speak of the land and distill the essence of the season, embodying a spirit of independence and adventure, each one true to their style and place.
McLaren Vale is our heartland, where our reds are made with grapes from our own 11ha plot and other carefully selected, often ancient vines. We favour a modern take on classic styles and meticulous attention to detail. Through our wines, we celebrate those growers who persisted while others begged them to turn their land to other pursuits.
