Ashton Hills Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
This is benchmark Adelaide Hills chardonnay of understated effortlessness and harmonious restraint, yet somehow, remarkably, still delightfully intense with grapefruit, lime, white peach and fig. It displays an air of charcuterie complexity and a delightful texture that marries lees-derived complexity with the inimitable chalky mineral definition of this cool, high vineyard. A wine of enduring length, undeviating line and great longevity.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; the complex, slightly funky bouquet does not prepare you for the tsunami of flavour on the long and classy palate; this is right in white Burgundy territory, with a marvellous aftertaste.
Australian Wine Companion 2012 2011
James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Superb green-straw; an immaculately crafted wine, with flavours of white peach, melon and fig; it is the texture that is quite outstanding, the creamy mouthfeel tied by a bow of acidity on the finish; you know French oak plays an integral part, but it's never obvious.

Rob Geddes MW (2008 Vintage) says
Very fine aromas, bright white peach, fresh fruit, leaner in structure than the neighbours, low-key oak, silky textures which do vary with vintage conditions.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Brilliant green-yellow; the bright bouquet does not fully prepare you for the energy and drive of the long palate, built around grapefruit, nectarine and crunchy acidity.
Australian Wine Companion 2011 2010
James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Aromatic nectarine fruit on the bouquet; a superbly precise palate reflecting new and used barrel ferment French oak, lees stirring and partial mlf; flawless wine.
Australian Wine Companion 2009 2008
James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
A complex and subtle interweaving of barrel ferment, mlf and lees; stone fruit, melon, cream and nuts; good length.
Australian Wine Companion 2008 2007
James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Elegant and fine, proclaiming its quality from the first sniff; a complex and seamless texture and line; nectarine, melon, creamy/nutty oak and malolactic influences.
Australian Wine Companion 2007 2006
Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Tangy, racy chardonnay whose pure, intense fruit qualities are tightly knit with creamy lees and sweet vanilla oak influences. Tropical aromas of pineapple and mango precede a round, almost oily palate richly endowed with apple, pear and tropical flavours, with a lingering note of green olive. It finishes long and refreshing.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Fine, elegant and sophisticated; stone fruit, citrus and cashew; subtle oak; perfect balance.
Australian Wine Companion 2005 2004
James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Bright, light to medium yellow-green; fine stone fruit, citrus and melon intermingles with subtle barrel-ferment aromas on the bouquet; the palate is beautifully weighted and proportioned, with delectable nectarine fruit, the oak in a pure support role.
Australian Wine Companion 2004 2003
James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Glowing yellow-green; complex barrel-ferment aromas surround the nectarine, fig, melon and citrus fruit of the bouquet; the powerful fruit of the palate has some additional cashew, with oak underneath, and a long, clean finish.
Australian Wine Companion 2003 2002
James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Glowing yellow-green, identical to that of the 2000; the bouquet is complex yet subtle, with excellent fruit and oak balance and integration, in consistent Ashton Hills style. The palate is particularly appealing, with fine, elegant, melon, fig and cashew woven through with subtle oak.
