Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

Lively golden hues flash on the edges while the core is brilliant mid yellow.

Aroma

This McLaren Vale Chardonnay has typical ripe peach and rock melon character jumping out of the glass on first impression. Deeper on the nose is creamy roasted cashew nut and vanilla custard tart with a hint of spice and confection.

Palate

On the initial palate the fruit is more subtle with the rich, buttery flavours dominating. Cashew nuts and savoury smoked almonds feature in the middle with solid tannins adding texture and character. The palate weight is full and the finish is clean and dry with a supple, creamy richness.

Food Matching

This is a lovely full flavoured wine for summer evenings on the patio. This wine is ideal with smoked salmon and capers or oysters with lime juice and cracked pepper or steamed prawns straight out of the shell. Make sure not to over-chill to maximize the natural bouquet and flavour.

Cellaring Potential

This Chardonnay has enjoyed two and a half year’s cellar maturation before release. It is ready to drink now and will continue to be enjoyable drinking over the next 2 – 3 years.

Winery Profile

With over 50 years combined experience in viticulture and winemaking, old time “heavyweights” Chris Hill and Adam Jacobs have taken up the gauntlet to champion independent grape growers and craft a range of genuinely unique regional wines. Our quest is to simply deliver an individual experience that reflects the origin and rustic charm behind each wine.

At a time when small growers are struggling for recognition, our ultimatum is to fight to retain the diversity and charisma of true Australian wines, built up over generations. To lead this challenge we’ve chosen the image of the rampant Griffin, half Lion half Eagle. It’s a legendary symbol of courage and boldness combining the noble values of intelligence and strength … a valiant herald for the vision of Hill & Jacobs.

Each wine reflects the soils, climate and terroir of the vineyard. We embrace a traditional, hand crafted approach to winemaking allowing the natural varietal and regional characteristics to come to the fore. They’re bursting with reliable, genuine flavours from down to earth independent grape growers.

The “Limited Release” collection is a range of rare and unique batches of prestige quality wines that display outstanding flavour, texture and complexity.

We hope you enjoy!

Chris and Adam
