“The whole vineyard is farmed biodynamically. We find this site stops ripening quite early in the afternoon because of the breeze from the cooler Southern Ocean. We find it gets this beautiful acid line. ”

Tasting Notes

Born of a record breaking vintage, this exquisite Chardonnay from the Witchcliffe subregion, is a gorgeous portrayal of McHenry Hohnen’s home block – Hazel’s Vineyard.

The wine teases the nose with aromas of peach and almond meal which will exceed expectations on the palate. A captivating combination of subtle citrus turns to nectarine and honeydew. Aged in French oak without malolactic fermentation ensures the flavour is sharp and lasting.

“The wine boasts intensity of flavour and sneaky persistence, building nicely as it opens. Still, the overall impression is one of tension, smoky chiselled phenolics and punchy acidity steering the ship. Cool and brimming with intent. ”

“Pure chardonnay, pure Margaret River. Stonefruit abounds but so too lime, pear and grapefruit. Oak is prominent too but in a hand-in-glove way. Not the most complex or sophisticated of chardonnays but vigorous and intense. Quite glorious in its own way. ”
