Hardys Eileen Hardy Chardonnay 2015
Medium straw in colour with bright, green tinges. Intense aromas of ripe citrus lemon and stone fruit with a hint of toasty oak interwoven with a rich and savoury palate that is complex, textural with a juicy finish. A rich, powerful and elegant wine. Eileen Hardy Chardonnay looks to preserve the essential characteristics of the fruit in the vineyard. To create the highest quality blend every vintage. Gentle handling of the fruit and wine help to achieve this, while restrained winemaking assists in developing the complexity of the final blend.
"Gleaming straw-green; manages to effortlessly combine power and intensity with elegance and glorious varietal fruit expression. White stone fruit is at the very heart of a palate that aspires to perfection. Quality French oak and minerally acidity play their parts, albeit largely forgotten in the wealth of fruit."
