Overview

Overview

Coldstream Hills was established in 1985 by James and Suzanne Halliday and has since grown to become one of Australia's leading and most awarded small wineries.

Sourced from hillside sloping vineyards in the Upper and Lower Yarra Valley. The Upper Yarra Chardonnay generally provides attractive citrus characters, with mineral slate notes and length; the Lower Yarra is often fleshier in style with attractive white peach and quince characters. Blending of parcels from both regions produces wines of complexity, varietal definition and length.

92 points Halliday Wine Companion

"A mid-weighted meld of a tighter contemporary approach, with a broader, more accessible palate hewn of fruit from the upper and lower sections of the Yarra. Classy enough. Buffered by a truffled, mealy mid-palate, plenty creamy and detailed, following 9 months in used oak. Ample sunny stone fruit flavours, too. Plenty to like."
