About The Wine

One of the most sought-after Chardonnays in Tasmania comes from the small plot of land in Tamar Valley tended by Joe and Lou Holyman.

This is a scintillating Chardonnay. The fruit is the star of the show with Joe's wines. It's no different with the Chardonnay. He makes no additions during winemaking with just a dab of sulphur keeping the wine fresh and sound.

Only a painfully small amount of this wine sees the light of day. Small production and a ravenous fan base means most of this gets snapped up from the winery in short order.

If you want a look at the brilliant 2017 release, you'll need to be quick.

With 97 points from Gary Walsh, this is won't last long.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Oatmeal, mixed citrus and green pear, sweet spicy ginger oak neatly folded in, spent fireworks from a distance. Medium-bodied, burst of lime and green pear, sour yoghourt, chalky and rigidly textured, juicy acidity running through its core, and a waxy feel comes as a bonus. Finish is long, bright and tingling, with a suggestion of lime rind and spice. It’s a different style to some that have come before: a bit tighter, wilder, more ‘mineral’ driven, but not the lesser for it. Wonderful." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

This wine is showing some white peach and stone fruits, with a rich fleshy palate. The flavours are lasting and are finished off by our usual grippy acidity, with hints of oak.

Our 2017 Holyman Chardonnay is from our tiny 0.75Ha block. We have always been committed to only old vine fruit going into the Holyman wines which means that we will never be able to make more of this Chardonnay that we do now.

Blend : Chardonnay (100%)
