Helen’s Hill ‘Breachley Block’ Chardonnay 2014

Hand-picked and fermented in French oak with ‘wild’ (ambient/naturally existing in the winery) yeasts.

A classic, modern Australian style – tropical fruits, nutty and subtle nuances of French oak on the nose with flavours of cashews, grapefruits and lemons.  Textured with creaminess and richness, yet finishing with clean acidity.  Aged 10 months in French Oak.

Reviews & Awards

“95 points”

“Estate-grown, hand-picked, wild-fermented in new and used French barriques with lees stirring. Excellent wine with the length and intensity that is the hallmark of the Yarra  Valley; it is fruit-driven, with pink grapefruit and white peach sharing the wine’s  billboard, complexed by good acidity and savoury notes on the finish.”
James Halliday’s Wine Companion 2016

“94 points”

“Funky kind of feel. Kicks off with struck match/flinty mineral suggestion and segues to stone fruit and just-ripe melon scents with a puff of nougat oak character. Oak is well meshed in the palate too, showing a little creaminess among the racier fruit character.  Character yet finesse.”
Mike Bennie, WBM, July/August 2015

“93+ points”

“Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; Or close the wall up with our English dead.  Maniac flicking matches on fireworks night level of sulphide here, white peach, grapefruit and cashews.  Medium bodied, smoky and tangy with a combination of peach and citrus, a silky honeyed glossiness meets flinty texture, and struck match again on a pretty long and convincing finish. Flavour, fine bones and winery work all at once. It works pretty well for me.  Engaging wine.”
Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, May 2015
