Our 2016 Old Hill Chardonnay displays perfumed notes of roasted cashew and luscious citrus. The textural palate delivers riper citrus characters with fresh honey and integrated oak.

Vinification

The Old Hill block chardonnay grapes were fermented in French oak barriques using wild yeast and left to mature on lees for 12 months.

Winemaker: Scott McCarthy

2016 Vintage

The 2016 Vintage brought very stable and pleasant conditions, although dry, across the vineyard allowing for perfect budburst and fruit set. We have seen the earliest ever Chardonnay harvest date of the 16th of February.

Halliday Rating - 91 points

"Wild-fermented in French barriques, matured on lees for 12 months. Pale straw-green; racy, lemony acidity makes its mark immediately, joining with acidity to further impose itself. The result isn't difficult to deal with, because there is enough stone fruit and apple to provide balance."
