Hallowed Turf Chardonnay 2015

$30.00

Aromatically the wine shows vibrant cantaloupe, citrus rind, and white stone fruit notes intermingled with hints of honeysuckle, mascarpone and cinnamon spice.

The palate is focused yet textural. Grapefruit, peach and melon flavours are underlined with hints of almond meal, brioche and ginger. The finish is savoury and moreish.

The finest French oak is flawlessly integrated and balanced, in line with the winery extended bottle aging regime.

Description

Hallowed Turf 2015  

Background:

Heydon Estate wines are the product of our aged single vineyard estate, located in the prestigious

Wilyabrup sub-region in the heart of the Margaret River appellation.

The fruit for this wine is 100% Mendoza clone, sourced from our old Chardonnay block.
2015 was a terrific vintage for Chardonnay with warm days and delightfully cool nights. Such is the quality and balance of our old Chardonnay block, encouraging full and complex flavour development while retaining a classical extended acidity and elegance that “The Willow” is renowned for.
