Helen's Hill Estate 'Breachley Block' Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2017 (Yarra Valley, Victoria) "...peach, grapefruit and flint...
The Helen’s Hill wine range holds the spirit of those who have gone before us. It celebrates passion, persistence and the genuine connection between people and land. Each wine is hand crafted and under goes an arduous selection process before it makes it into a Helen’s Hill bottle. As we know, great wine is made in the vineyard and as such only small select parcels of fruit from certain rows of our single vineyard site are hand picked at harvest. Each wine is fermented in select French oak barrels. Prior to bottling, each barrel is tasted and ranked with only the best barrels selected for the Helen’s Hill range.
"Bright, fine straw with a green hue, it expresses beautiful complex aromatics of bright nectarine with sea spray perfume and fine oak. It has excellent structure with ripe stonefruit and citrus throughout, cashew-like softness and very long flavours with restrained yet deluxe oak in support."
