About The Wine
This is only the second vintage of the Butcher's Hill Chardonnay from the Pooley Family, but it's starting to attract a lot of attention.
The Chardonnay fruit from this block once was a portion of the Penfold's Yattarna Chardonnay, but here it struts its own stuff.
The 2017 vintage proving to be one of the great vintages in Tasmania. In this Chardonnay you see the purity and the drive that is characteristic of this vintage.
This is a delicious, refined Chardonnay, a little rounder than its Cooinda Vale sibling, but no less sublime.
Pooley is one of the leading family-owned wineries in Tasmania, renowned for their exquisite Single Vineyard examples of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling from the Coal River region, less than an hour north of Hobart.
The family vineyard was planted in 1985 by Margaret and Denis Pooley. Today it is in the hands of the third generation of Pooleys, with award-winning winemaker Anna Pooley heading up the cellar and her brother Matt as viticuluralist. They make a killer team and the family business is going from strength to strength.
Anna's wines are pure, refined and eminently cellar-worthy. A class-act producer setting a cracking pace for all of Tasmania to follow.
