2018 Chardonnay

By consumer demand, we reintroduce the still wine from our chardonnay grapes, rather than reserving them all for our Blanc de Blancs.
This stunning wine is in high demand and quantities are limited.

Vintage Details

Wines from Vintage 2018 are maturing well in barrel. 2018 was a tale of two seasons with some of the most challenging humid weather ever experienced during the growing season (Oct-Dec 2017) followed by exceptionally dry conditions after Christmas. We are very excited with the resulting wines but more on that in good time.

Gembrook Hill Chardonnay 2018

2018 was clearly very good at Gembrook Hill.

Elegant plus. It has the flavour and it then lets flow take over. Nectarine, pure white peach, citrus and creamed honey, spiced cedarwood. It’s alert, alive and lovely. The length of the finish is quite outstanding. It’s a wine with all the right moves.

Campbell Mattinson's review of the 2017 Chardonnay

Gembrook Hill's wines always have elegance written all over them.

There's colour to this wine but it's fresh and frisky on both the nose and on the palate. We get flavour delivered in
cool, refreshing style. There are notes of lime to the peach, cedarwood to the nectarine. The palate has some fruit
and oak sweetness, almost a honeysuckle/honey aspect, but it remains cool and direct. It's drinking beautifully now but it will no doubt sing harmoniously for a number of years.
