2014 was an exceptional year for Chardonnay at Hush Heath. The grapes for this Cuvée came entirely from our Old 8 Acre Vineyard, hand-harvested between 12th-15th October 2014. Fermented in specially designed stainless steel tanks kept at a cool 16°C to ensure clean, pure characters and complexity. The wine undergoes a secondary fermentation in bottle, followed by a minimum 30 months ageing on the lees.

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Brilliant white gold, with a fine sustained bead & mousse.

Nose: Clean and fresh with a touch of autolysis, white pepper and dried herbs.

Palate: Vibrant and increasingly complex. Dry with a steely lime acidity. Citrus and apple notes precede the characteristic slightly salty Hush Heath finish.

Ageing Potential: 8+ years

Food Pairings: Excellent with seafood, particularly oysters and other shellfish. Winemakers favourite is roast chicken with citrus dressed salad and a creamy sauce.
