Winery Tasting Notes
Light straw in colour.
A fine array of cool climate Chardonnay characters of white peach and lifted aromas of fresh citrus fruits. Subtle and balanced French oak provides support with wafts of pecan.
Thomas Hyland Chardonnay provides creamy stonefruit notes with a fine minerality down the middle of the palate, offering precision and length. Citrus acidity keeps the palate taut and tight - the oak is barely there - enough to provide complexity without dominating the pure Adelaide Hills fruit characters.
Ideal with chicken, seafood and salads.
The Thomas Hyland range honours the pioneering spirit of Thomas Hyland, son-in-law of Dr. Christopher Rawson Penfold, whose stewardship of the company from the late 1800s until 1914 saw the development of what, in his lifetime, became Australia's most famous name in wine.
