Overview

Good winter rainfall followed by mild conditions during spring ensured the Padthaway Chardonnay vineyards developed good sized, healthy canopies. The summer months were extremely warm and dry with only one significant rainfall event during the middle part of February. Despite this, dryer conditions prevailed necessitating the use of supplementary irrigation. This resulted in good canopy health throughout ripening, ensuring the fruit remained in excellent condition right through to harvest. Harvesting during the cool of the night was critical to minimise phenolic extraction. The fruit came in to the winery in excellent condition displaying rich regional fruit characters and fresh acidity, both of which are fundamental elements of the St Hilary Padthaway Chardonnay

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Light straw with green hues

Aroma

Intense aromas of ripe peach and fig, integrated with spicey vanilla oak.

Palate

Rich regional stone fruit flavours and subtle citrus notes are supported with toasty, savoury oak that enhances the fruit and provides structure to the palate. Malolactic fermentation and battonage has imparted a textural creaminess that adds complexity and weight, whilst softening the acidity, leading to a well-rounded and long finish.

Cellaring

The 2013 St Hilary Padthaway Chardonnay exemplifies the rich regional stone fruit characters and finely structured acidity the region is renowned for. The wine is easily enjoyable now but will continue to evolve in the bottle and will reward those who carefully cellar it over the next 4-5 years.
