Right around the time that Frank Potts was planting his nascent Bleasdale Vineyards during the 1850s, an eccentric Prussian named Herman Daenke established a homestead along the banks of Bremer River, which he called Metala. The site was planted to viticulture by Arthur Formby in 1891 and became one of Langhorne Creek's most productive vineyards, it continues to supply fruit for a number of prestigious national brands. Legendary winemaker Brian Dolan took the radical step of bottling Metala under its own label in 1959 and won the inaugural Jimmy Watson Trophy in 1962.

Greg Melick embarked on the prodigal road to gambling and booze as a mere teenager, after winning the daily double at Werribee and spending the lot on good red wine. He ultimately returned to the straight and narrow, achieving the rank of ADF Major General, Senior Law Counsel, Master Wine Judge and Officer of Australia AO. Melick now grows his own, he remains besotted with les grands vignobles de Bourgogne, the illustrious Pinot Noir of Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune. There are few places in the world, more akin to the 1er Grand Cru style of Pinot Noir, than the temperate pastures along Tasmania's River Derwent.

Fully mature vines, cooler sites and access to crucial water gives Mountadam the edge. Chardonnay is sourced from the Mountadam estate property near the historic Boehm Springs Reserve, a nesting ground for Wedge Tail Eagles, the Mountadam logo. Sitting at an altitude of over 400 metres above sea level the vines grow in quartz rich sandy loams formed from the underlying schist bedrock. Picking grapes throughout the cool of early morning followed by a gentle pressing and a long cool four weeks of fermentation with natural cultured yeast helps retain maximum grape flavours. Parcels are selected which can best display the intensity of Chardonnay within the context of a vibrantly unoaked wine.
A pale green colour. Aromas of tropical fruit, rich apricot and ripe nectarine, layered with the complexity associated from a traditional vinification. Intense lively aromas of ripe peach and melon carry through on the palate with distinctly fresh acidity typical of cool climate Chardonnay. A long finish with lingering fruit characters and racy acidity. To accompany chicken caesar or grilled fresh water fishes.
