2018 BackVintage Adelaide Hills Chardonnay - New!
Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW

Huon Hooke Top Value #2 out of 23

 
Background

An unusually warm and dry summer in the Adelaide Hills has contributed to this full-flavoured Chardonnay.

Tasting Notes

 

Colour
Pale yellow

Nose
Rich white and yellow peach flavours with a hint of cashew, honeydew melon and a hint of grassiness.

Structure / Palate
Medium body. Ripe stonefruit flavours with subtle oak overtones. Light texture on the finish with balanced acidity.

This is a well-balanced, ‘modern’ style of Chardonnay, with fresh flavours and understated oak. Slightly richer and rounder than our 2016 vintage, this wine will be delicious with poultry and seafood, it will gain further richness into 2020.

Huon Hooke - The Real Review:
"Light to mid-yellow hue. The bouquet summons stone fruit and cashew aromas and a little fresh herb. The palate is soft and fruity, rounded and fruit-sweet with firm acidity undercutting the sweetness. It's excellent value for money"
88 points. Drink 2019 to 2024.
