Christian Audigier Chardonnay White Wine 75cl
Each vintage, the Hardys winemakers select the best Chardonnay to carry the “Eileen Hardy” label. By taking a selection of cool climate regions where only the best parcels of fruit are selected, handpicked, naturally fermented and placed in high quality French oak, the hallmarks of this outstanding wine are formed. 65% underwent malolactic fermentation until the acid balance and texture were in harmony, and the wine was then allowed to mature for 10 months in order to build texture. The 2010 Eileen Hardy is a Chardonnay that sets the style trend, exemplifying cool climate Chardonnay at its very best. Tasting Note ColourDeep straw with green hues. BouquetBright aromas of citrus combine with light toasty oak and a delightfully complexing ‘funk’. PalateFollowing through from the bouquet, fresh citrus and grapefruit spice flavours abound, while textural pith, hazelnuts and cream compliment the juicy mineral acidity and deliver a fine, long finish.
This is our fourth vintage of HRB Chardonnay, consisting of fruit sourced from premium vineyards in Pemberton and the Yarra Valley viticultural regions. Like its predecessors, the 2011 Chardonnay is a classic example of Thomas Hardy’s belief in regional blending.Food PairingA lovely accompaniment to lemon and thyme roasted chicken
Tasting Notes Colour Deep straw with green tinges BouquetBright white peach and melon with hints of pineapple and red apple PalateA fruit driven palate with notes of fresh white peach and melon showing hints of soft acidity. The wine exhibits a creamy mouth feel
On the nose expect white peach and lemon floral notes with a complexing nutty/nougat semblance. On the palate lots of citrus, creamy and a long fine finish. A pure and elegant wine to compliment any seafood dish.

Cloudy Bay – Marlborough – Chardonnay Wine – 75clThe irresistible scent of pink grapefruit and lemon blossom is beautifully counterbalanced by smoky, savoury aromatics, reminiscent of roasted cashews and macadamia nuts! The palate is rich yet refined leads with savoury notes which give way to a taut citrus core, revealing the vibrant Marlborough fruit. Less well-known than the Sauvignon Blanc, but regarded by many as the superior wine.
