About Almondcart Wines

Our story

Almondcart wines are produced entirely from fruit grown on our Charleston vineyard overlooking the Onkaparinga Valley in the Adelaide Hills. While it is principally east-facing, it has southern aspects for our white varieties and a higher rocky north-tilted section for our reds. Southeasterly winds keep the site cool through most of summer and we are able to produce fine sparkling wine from Chardonnay and Pinot in the lower sections as well as medium bodied reds from the higher ground. All fruit is hand-picked to maximize delicacy and elegance and transported just three kilometres down the road to our winemakers in Mount Torrens. We use new and seasoned French oak barrels for all our table wines to give them greater softness, complexity and longevity. Read more…

Our Wines

Almondcart La Jura Savagnin 2010 (375ml)
Adelaide Hills, SA

“Savagnin Blanc is a white grape with green-skinned berries, mostly grown in the Jura region of France, where it is made into the famous Vin Jaune and Vin de Paille. I love its marmalade and apricot notes on the nose and the beautiful, genuine botrytis is simply luscious. The palate is very good with great acid and balance.”

– Greg Melick – Director of The Wine Society and Tasting Panellist

 

almondcart Pinot Chardonny

Pinot Chardonnay 2011 (750ml)
Adelaide Hills, SA

Award winning  Class 1 Sparkling wine, Adelaide Hills Regional Wine Show 2015
” Pinot and Chardonnay fruit was hand-picked and whole- bunch pressed. Secondary fermentation occurred in this bottle and with aging on yeast lees for over 4 years. It is dry, delicious and elegant.”

– Kim Anderson – Viticulturist and owner at Almondcart Wines



Grüner Veltliner 2015 (750ml)
Adelaide Hills, SA

Silver medal winner in the Alternative Varieties Wine Show in Mildura.
“The primary fruit flavors in Grüner Veltliner are lime, lemon and grapefruit. There is also a green and herbaceous flavor that is often described as white pepper. However, what makes Grüner Veltliner wine so unique is its signature vein of acidity that explodes in your mouth like pop rocks.”
