Review for Eileen Hardy Chardonnay 2006

    edwardragg Wine Blogger September 23, 2010
    From the Landmark Tutorial (23rd Sept 2010, Yarra Valley), ‘Single Vineyards and Sacred Sites vs. Blending’ presented by Brian Walsh. Appearance: deep gold. Nose: lush and plush, generous citrus lemon with gorgeous oak (both toasted, slight nutty – but not oxidized) with hints of vanilla and cinnamon, among other spices. Palate: gorgeous fruit – with both a cooler climate and warmer climate emphasis in the blend – balanced by zingy medium acidity and very well-integrated high alcohol. Excellent length. Conclusion: from fruit sourced in Tumbarumba (NSW), Coal River (Tasmania) and the Yarra Valley (Victoria), a powerful Chardonnay with considerable elegance and finesse. Both approachable now and a candidate for mid-term ageing, a superb multi-regional blend.
