** UPDATE 7th November, 2018 - SOLD OUT **
Limited Release - only 200 Dozen Made
We're pleased to announce the much-anticipated release of the latest Hill Block Chardonnay from the 2018 Vintage.
After the excellent 2017 vintage, 2018 follows on back-to-back as another standout year at Lake's Folly (I'm very pleased with the resultant wines from both vintages).
Tasting notes follow.
LAKE'S FOLLY HILL BLOCK CHARDONNAY 2018 96 / 100
Colour is golden yellow. Yeasty, barrel fermentation characters on the nose, with melon and white peach, and subtle fine-charred oak.
The palate is silky, seamless, rounded, with peach and melon flavours. Extremely classy wine with layers of complexity – Burgundian in style. Will develop even more complex characters with time; stylish and complete.
With the limited supply of 200 dozen made (available in 12-bottle or 6-bottle cases), and the popularity of past Hill Block releases, we expect this vintage to sell quickly.
If you'd like to acquire some for your cellar we'd recommend ordering early to avoid disappointment - links are below, or you can click on any of the BUY WINE buttons on this site.
I hope you enjoy this new release.
