2018 Commune of Buttons 'Clover' Chardonnay

Basket Range, South Australia

The Clover Chardonnay is from the Buttons' Clover Vineyard i.e. their own farmed family estate fruit. The wine is gentle in the mouth, super textural, but a nice crisp level of acidity when compared to previous vintages. It's has intense characteristics of peachy saline acidity from the clay soils. The warm dry conditions resulted in good fruit concentration

Dry grown for 5 years. Whole bunch pressed, allowed to settle in tank for 12 hours then fermented in seasoned barriques. Aged on full lees for 7 months, in barriques with battonage once every two weeks for 3 months. Brandied into stainless steel tank and allowed to settle for 2 months. Bottled without preservatives in November 2018.

About the maker

Another Basket Range powerful duo, Jasper and Sophie Button are siblings making beautiful wine from organic grapes.

Jasper and Sophie Button are a brother and sister team, making wine from their family vineyard in the Basket Range sub-region of the Adelaide Hills. Jasper grew up in the Basket Range region in the Adelaide Hills and helped to plant twelve acres of vines on the family farm when he was just 10 years of age. The grapes were originally farmed to sell to wineries, but after struggling in later years to find the right wineries to buy them, the Buttons decided to start marking wine under their own label. The grapes are grown organically by their mum, they are cool climate grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. All the wines are made with minimal intervention and a lot of love, inspired by the surrounding community of frivolous and passionate winemakers.
