Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour

From the moment your pour the first glass, this wine’s richness is evident. The colour is a vibrant deep yellow with a golden luster and sticky alcohol legs.

Aroma

The bouquet displays stone fruit characters of peach and nectarine but the fruitiness is giving way to rich creamy butter with hints of lanolin, hazelnuts and vanilla custard.

Palate

On entry the flavour is predominantly peaches and cream with a twist of lemon butter. Towards the middle palate it builds intensity and body with a mellow nutty texture and subtle vanillin oak. The flavours linger long on the aftertaste with a smooth dry finish. It’s the body weight and warm alcohol that give depth and mouth-feel.

Food Matching

This style of McLaren Vale Chardonnay is big and hearty. I love it with a generous serve of fresh veal tortellini and a creamy sauce with mushrooms and bacon Serve it lightly chilled, around 12 degrees, to bring out the rich buttery flavours and highlight the complexity this region produces.

Cellaring Potential

With over 2 years maturation this wine has been bottled ready to be enjoyed on release. It’s smooth and mellow now and will cellar for up to another 3-4 years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Hope Estate wines express the deep individuality of our land and vines. All our wines are estate grown, we never dilute our character with other people’s fruit. So we bring you uniquely regional styles of wine.

The finesse and elegance that comes from the red Hunter soil. The European-style subtlety of our Victorian vineyards. And the length and concentrated fruit that only Western Australian maritime climate vineyards can create.

The Hunter has our largest vineyards, focused on the varieties that the region does best: Shiraz, Semillon, Chardonnay and Verdelho.

Our Kyneton vineyards produce intense flavours from low-yield vines. Its most famous product is Virgin Hills, a wine of remarkable Old World finesse that James Halliday nominated as his ‘desert island wine’.

Our Donnybrook vineyard in WA is best known for The Ripper and The Cracker, two vivid fruit-driven reds that are among our most popular wines.

Hope Estate wines are sought-after overseas, with much of our product taken by discerning US and UK buyers.

You can experience Hope Estate’s wines at our cellar door 7 days a week. We’re just re-working our web site right now, so the web store will be off-line for a few weeks. If you’d like to place an order, download the form here Order Form – Feb 2016 and email or fax. Cheers!
