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.
The 2010 Eileen Hardy is a Chardonnay that sets the style trend, exemplifying cool climate Chardonnay at its very best.

Bright, light straw-green; the very complex bouquet, with its Burgundian funk, has been deliberately built and, for the time being, lords it over the perfectly delineated and weighted stone fruit and citrus of the palate, its future guaranteed.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep straw with green hues.
Bright aromas of citrus combine with light toasty oak and a delightfully complexing ‘funk’.
Following 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.
