Lightning Creek Chardonnay
There is a creek that borders the Kulara Estate vineyard. The creek is lined by old Australian red gum trees. Many years ago, lightning from a rain drenched electrical storm hit one of the trees that were thought to be over 100 years old.
The same tree lay by the creek for many years as a reminder of that fateful stormy evening until one day it was cut up and stockpiled to be used as firewood for outdoor camps, alongside the Lightning Creek bed.
