Pooley Butchers Hill Chardonnay 2023


A great vintage for this wine and for Tasmanian chardonnay. Eye wateringly intense, with aromas of grapefruit, gardenia, mandarin, lime preserve and lemon thyme. Rich, full bodied and round, underpinned by a scaffold of apple and lemon driven acidity. Brioche, apple strudel, acacia honey and cream fill out the fleshy, pulpy mid palate, before finishing with thirst quenching minerals. Awesome expression. Waters Wine Co


The Butchers Hill Vineyard located in Richmond at the historic Belmont Lodge was established in 2003. The vineyard is a prominent feature to the Richmond landscape as it protrudes from the borders of the town. The steep north facing slope of this site starting from 30m-100m above sea level means that it receives some very long sunlight hours, protection from cold southern winds and increased drainage of soils. The ferricrete attribute of the soils not only hold heat and water longer as they are darker but the iron oxide also interacts with the production of flavonoids in the fruit and typically produces wines that are complex and robust. There are currently 6ha of vine planted on this property in total.

Fruit was handpicked. Whole bunch pressed to tank. Then racked to barrel for fermentation. CHD yeast was used. Matured for 10 months in French oak barriques (228 litres) of which 35% was new. The cooperage was Sirugue. This wine saw 35% MLF completed. Pooley Wines
