Tasting Evaluation Colour: Pale strawAroma: Lifted aromas of white peach and nectarine, white florals, nougat and underlying oak spice.Palate: Stone fruits complimented with a nougat creaminess from maturation on full lees fill the flavour profile, framed by subtle oak phenolics and a fine slatey acid line
The Chardonnay grapes were sourced from a single vineyard located at Birdwood in the Adelaide Hills. Elevated slopes and cool gully winds at night help to slow ripening ensuring phenological grape maturity and full flavour development, whilst retaining natural acidity.
2017 Hemera 'Estate' Chardonnay
Hemera Estate Wines
Nestled just outside of Lyndoch in the beautiful Barossa Valley, Hemera Estate rests on a 100-year-old vine-bearing acreage. The property was purchased by Pauline and Darius Ross in 1993, and the first vintage produced in 1999 under the name of Ross Estate. The winery was built in 2000, and in 2012 was purchased by Winston Wines and the name changed to Hemera Estate. We pride ourselves on producing premium wines, with over 95% of our vintage produced from the grapes you see on our property. We also boast a unique cellar door experience, along with our own winery tour where you can see our on-site bottling and labeling plant and enjoy the finest of local Barossa Valley produce.
