Penny's Hill Chardonnay

Cracka Review

Pale straw and gold. Tropical fruits and fresh peaches. Subtle use of oak provides an underlay of creaminess and texture for this well-balanced wine. Note too a fine, juicy middle palate and a lingering finish.

Penny's Hill Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Cleverly made by keeping the winemaker's thumb prints at a low level, with only 20% barrel ferment in older French oak; this has preserved as much as possible of the fruit profile, and also given good mouthfeel.

WINESTATE (2008 Vintage) says
Floral/citrus bouquet and bright citrus and pineapple flavoured palate with green apples on the end.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Generous ripe peach flavours; a hint of oak adds as much to the texture as to the flavour.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Ripe melon into tropical fruit; has soaked up the oak; full flavoured, drink-now style.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; clean, smooth nicely ripened nectarine fruit is married with balanced and integrated oak on the bouquet; the palate has plenty of depth and length to the nectarine fruit, rounded off with neatly handled oak.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium to full yellow-green; ripe yellow peach and smoky oak aromas are quite complex; a similarly rich, soft and ripe palate has lots of flavour, but a somewhat congested finish.
