Hardys Sir James Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; the moderately intense bouquet has light citrus and nectarine fruit supported by balanced oak; while the palate is only light to medium-bodied, it has good length and line; fruit-driven. Predominantly from the Adelaide Hills and Padthaway.

Yet another good chardonnay from the BRL Hardy stable, named after the larger- than-life former head of the company, Sir James Hardy. It's a blend of fruit from two of South Australia's premium cool-climate regions and has lovely, lifted, aromatic yellow fruit characters, a good crisp palate and deliciously enticing toasty oak flavours from its partial barrel fermentation. It finishes clean and dry. Excellent value.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; the moderately intense bouquet is clean, with fresh grapefruit aromas and minimal oak. The fresh, citrussy palate shows its cool-climate origins in no uncertain fashion, supported by subtle barrel-ferment notes.

This has been the Sparkling Wine of the Year for the past two years, so the price has drifted up by almost $2. I've included it in this chapter (although it will not be eligible for any awards) as I'm confident it will be available on discount and it's as good as ever. Soft, round and wonderful current drinking, with seductive yeasty flavours, creamy texture and gentle fresh acidity.
