Hay Shed Hill Block 6 Chardonnay Bottle Preview
Hay Shed HillBlock 6 Chardonnay

Planted in 1975 to Gin Gin (Mendoza) clone Chardonnay, Block 6 has a steep south-facing aspect thereby reducing the sunlight interception by the vines and creating a cool micro climate ideal for quality Chardonnay production. These dry grown vines produce tiny quantities of fruit with distinctive restrained minerally character. COLOUR: Brilliant appearance, great clarity and the lightest of green hues. NOSE: Mineral aromatics with background savoury flinty notes. The fruit is in the fresh white pear spectrum with perhaps some citric elements. PALATE: The palate is vibrant and light. The old vine depth of fruit provides a complexity not seen in most Chardonnay - there is always more to find in the wine without it being overworked or over-blown. This is a beautiful wine with depth of flavour and texture that will stand up in a fine dining situation.
