Introducing Adelaide Hills Chardonnay
17 January 2014
Hill-Smith Estate is proud to announce the release of the Adelaide Hills Chardonnay to join the Eden Valley Chardonnay. These are contemporary wines crafted from fruit cultivated in premium Chardonnay growing regions.
Stylistically the Eden Valley Chardonnay hits the right balance of fruit freshness and lift with mid palate weight and texture exhibiting restraint and line. The wine shows subtle smoky oak presence adding texture and structure in an understated way. The wine is ideal on release or with two to three years of cellaring.
In contrast the Adelaide Hills is a fine, minerally expression of Chardonnay. The structure is long and linear with underlying fruit power. Wines from such great regions have the structure and concentration to support the richness of fine new French oak. Restrained in its youth the palate will continue to build and fill out with time in bottle. At least two years in bottle will put this in its prime.
