About

Murdoch Hill's 'Artisan' series is where winemaker Michael Downer has spread his wings in the family range. This 'Tilbury' Chardonnay is never around for long, particularly this year with his taking home the 2017 Young Gun of Wine award. This was one of the wines judged for the awards. When you taste it you'll see what all the fuss is about. Coming from a single vineyard in the Piccadilly Valley sub-region of the Adelaide Hills, it's whole bunch and whole berry fermented, with older French oak, only partial MLF and loads of 'solids work' giving the wine weight and complexity without ever feeling 'over-worked'. It received 94 points from Mike Bennie during the YGOW judging. If you love your premium Hills Chardonnay then this needs to be on your dining table. It's terrific.

What it Tastes Like

"Beautiful, come hither perfume of stone fruit, gentle nougat/halva, mixed citrus peel, faint ozone and seaspray. Cool, refreshing and lean but juicy in the palate. Lovely fresh cut nectarine and light chalky-slate-like mineral characters jostling. Slick exit with a refreshing, brick kiss of lemony coolness. Really good." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
