2015 Hentyfarm Chardonnay
At Hentyfarm we started with Chardonnay and truly believe in the style of Chardonnay that comes from this region.
With the coolest climate on the Australian mainland, our Chardonnay style is perfect for lovers of Chardonnay with finesse and minerality. Refined and ‘steely’ with distinct European styling. This wine is made from fruit which is carefully hand-picked from our block within Alastair Taylors award winning vineyard in Heywood, Henty.
This wine is then carefully tended by Justin with minimal intervention with a portion of wine matured in older French oak casks.
Colour : Pale straw with golden green hints
Bouquet: A slight flinty reduction blows off to reveal grilled grapefruit and marzipan aromas
Palate: Slippery citrus, stonefruit and almond flavours are held by the lingering acidity and creamy finish
Cellaring: With good cellaring conditions this wine will cellar and improve for up to 15 years
