The Helen’s Hill wine range celebrates passion, persistence and the genuine connection between people and land. Fruit primarily sourced from the oldest vines in the vineyard with "pockets" of other areas added for additional complexity. A cool climate classic. Stone fruits are the standout, white nectarine in its youth, richer yellow peach as it ages. French oak is a constant. This is new world Chardonnay at its best.

Scores & Reviews

95 / 100

James Halliday

(2018 vintage) "Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented and matured in French puncheons (30% new) for 9 months. Intense and powerful, with layers of white peach, cashew and pink grapefruit filling the mouth. Has immaculate balance, and all the length expected of a high class Yarra Valley chardonnay. Development is assured."

92 / 100

Huon Hooke

"Attractive oatmeal and pear bouquet, the palate restrained and refreshing, delicate yet intense, with a long, linear shape and good persistence. Creamy lees nuances. A fine wine."

"The back label describes this with the words “silky honeyed glossiness meets silky texture”. As fanciful as it sounds it’s pretty much spot on. It is honeyed, it is flinty, it shows both pineapple and grapefruit characters and yet there’s a softness to the mouthfeel. As a result, it’s an easy wine to take. And it’s also a quality one. It should improve with extra time in bottle too."
