Over five generations the Hill~Smith family have been pioneers in selecting exceptional vineyard sites to amplify the personality of their estate wines. Hidden within the elevated slopes of the Adelaide Hills are cool-climate vineyards that bear our Chardonnay grapes. Hand-picked, wild fermented, each parcel is kept separate in French oak barriques and then selected to craft the finest wine. A distinguishable union of region and variety, this characterful Chardonnay shows fresh citrus flavours layered with texture, complexity and a seamless finish.
Quartz-green and bright. Kapow! Complex white stone fruit and white flowers bound with notes of burnt match sulphides. Beautifully put together, with all the flow and texture you could expect. Drink by: 2027; Date Tasted: Feb 2019; Alcohol: 12.5%; Rating: 96 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
