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.
