Archer’s Chardonnay

Portfolio Categories: Conventional Print, Label of the Week, and Regional.

The Henschke Archer’s Vineyard Chardonnay, located high in the central cool-climate Adelaide Hills and planted in the mid-1980s, has been named as a tribute to Alan and Mary Archer of Lenswood. The property had previously belonged to Alan and Mary Archer who ran The Chesser Cellar, a dining institution in Adelaide for many years. Alan had previously sold Stephen’s father, Cyril’s wine in Adelaide and became a well-loved ‘mine host’ at the Chesser. Mary loved to grow her own vegetables for the restaurant in her well tended garden on the farm at Lenswood. The ancient well-drained sandy loam soils derived from a sedimentary shale bedrock ensure naturally low-yielding vines and concentrated fruit flavours. The 100% chardonnay is handpicked from individual blocks and fermented separately and lees aged in oak barrels. The cool-climate Adelaide Hills provides purity of fruit, beautiful acidity, length of flavour and great ageing potential.
