Magnificent, leaner, serious expression.
About The Wine
"The ferment took off like a Rocket," says Michael Downer, "One foudre (large format barrel) just went wild so we've bottled it seperetley this year."
This is the first release of this blistering, laser-focused Chardonnay from Murdoch Hill. It's tightly coiled - the pick of the best fruit from the Tilbury Chardonnay from the superb 2017 vintage in the Adelaide Hills.
Mike Bennie likened it to "supremely tightly wound Chablis." in his rave 95+ point review. As mentioned, only 1 barrel was bottled, and the release is extremely limited.
This arguably the most exciting wine to come out of this on-fire producer to date.
About Murdoch Hill
Murdoch Hill is a family-owned winery captained by talented young winemaker Michael Downer.
Downer splits the range in two: his clean-cut, consistently high-quality ‘Estate’ wines are excellent value and perpetually reliable, and his quirky, adventurous ‘Artisan’ wines which offer an alt-styling and different shades of the region.
With the combination of high-quality Adelaide Hills fruit grown on the family estate and the undoubted talent in the winery, this is a Hills producer on the up and up!
