2016 Holyman Chardonnay


Due to the warmer weather in the 2016 vintage (especially at night) our wines fermented a little faster than usual, which has resulted in the wines being a little more fruit driven than the usual wines we make.  This wine has an approachable almost rockmelon flavour and aroma.  It's inviting, immediately approachable but still has an underlying structure to it that will allow it to be cellared confidently.

  • 100% new 500L French oak puncheons

  • 100% estate grown - vines planted in 1986

  • Single block 

  • Non irrigated vines


The 2016 season in Tasmania was one of the warmest since we came here in 2004.  Whilst not overly hot during the day, the night time temperatures were warmer than usual which resulted in the vines 'working' day and night meaning we had our earliest harvest to date - the 4th of March.
