Eileen Hardy Chardonnay, Tasmania-Yarra Valley

Eileen Hardy Chardonnay, Tasmania-Yarra Valley

A blend from cool-climate regions using only the best parcels of fruit which are hand-picked, naturally fermented and aged in high quality French oak barrels. The grapes are sourced from Tasmania and the Yarra Valley: whole bunch pressed, they went directly into barriques for natural barrel fermentation; about 65% underwent a malolactic and the final blended wine was then allowed to mature for ten months in order to build texture. Bright aromas of citrus combine with light toasty oak; again, fresh citrus and grapefruit on the palate alongside hazelnuts and cream and a juicy minerally acidity on the fine, long finish.
