About

The Hillcrest Premium Chardonnay is a wine only ever made in exceptional vintages. With the near perfect conditions in the Yarra Valley during 2015, this may be one of their finest releases to date. Planted in 1970, this elite Chardonnay vineyard produces impossibly low yields of small but intense berries which produces a powerhouse wine. Contrary to the in vogue style in the Yarra, the Hillcrest Premium Chardonnay comes pre-loaded with luscious texture and a voluptuous mouthfeel. It's a flashy, full-bodied Chardonnay with some flesh on its bones. It's gloriously hedonistic and unique amongst the Yarra landscape. This release received an impressive 95 points from Gary Walsh. Rare and highly sought-after, the Hillcrest Premium releases are always in high demand.

What it Tastes Like

"Luxurious golden colour, nectarine, honey and white flowers, spicy vanilla biscuits, menthol and almost a roast chicken savoury thing going on. It’s intense, deeply flavoured and powerful, with a firm core of pure acidity, oxidative and savoury flavours, tangerine, a subtle chalk dust texture, and a very long finish. Idiosyncratic, yes! But what a glass of Chardonnay. I’m thinking, this vintage, may be best enjoyed over the next few years: the complexity is already here." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
