Palate Profile

Kemeny's Hidden Label range is a unique concept where we sell the exact same commercial wine under our Hidden Label range.  The only difference is we sell these for around half the price they normally sell for under their own label.  Also, for some added fun, we have hidden the name of the winemaker on the front label to give you a clue of what the actual wine really is!  

HINT: (you can always google the wine review as well)

Under its own label this wine has been referred to as " a 'timeless style' that remains at the vanguard of the Australian Chardonnay genre."

From one of the oldest family wineries in Australia with a history dating to the mid 19th century. Retail price in Australia is up to $100AUD!

"An outstanding chardonnay", Huon Hooke

    Critic Awards

    Bright, light to medium yellow colour; citrus fruits are showing, lemon and grapefruit. The palate is delicate and refined, subtle and delicious, beautifully balanced and the oak is very understated. The acidity is beautifully lively and refreshing, an outstanding chardonnay.

    Sourced from the Short Flat Vineyard planted in the late ‘60s, hand-picked and immediately basket-pressed then cold-settled and fermented, 8 months on lees in French oak (20% new). The bouquet is notably complex, the palate powerful and long; citrussy acidity.

    Unexpected gem

    I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed this wine. I was worried it would be too fruity or too young. It has a great balance with a decent depth.

    I will purchase again.
