Helen’s Hill ‘Breachley Block’ Chardonnay 2020

A classic, modern Australian style of Chardonnay

At Helen’s Hill they are firmly of the belief that the Yarra Valley provides them as vignerons with the perfect ‘terroir’ to produce the best Chardonnays in Australia.  The cool nights in summer maintain the acids and the hot days provide the intense fruit characteristics that all great chardonnays display.  There is a planting of Chardonnay vines on the Helen’s Hill Estate vineyard that thrive above all others in these areas.  They call it Breachley.  The Breachley Block of vines sits perched above the home of co-owners Andrew and Robyn McIntosh.  Planted in 1983, these vines provide an aged character to the fruit that simply cannot be replicated within younger vines.

2020 HH Breachley Block Chardonnay

Reviews & Awards

“94 points” (2017 vintage)

“A mix of clones, hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented in French puncheons (15% new), matured for 10 months.  Taking the wine direct to barrel for 10 months on full lees and only occasional batonnage probably reduces the mouthfeel due to reduction. However, the wine had only just made its way to bottle when tasted, so 6-12 months may see growth in complexity.”
