95 points




Levantine Hill is located in Victoria’s Yarra Valley and is one of Australia’s most premium wine producers. A family-owned estate comprising two vineyards and a state-of-the-art winery, cellar door, and highly awarded restaurant, its wines are handcrafted without compromise by renowned Australian winemaker Paul Bridgeman. With a stated ethos of producing cool climate, and delicate and refined wines of uncompromising quality, Levantine Hill has established a world-class reputation, winning many major international awards and the acclaim of leading wine experts.

Fermented and matured in a mix of premium French oak. Sourced predominantly from the east-facing block of the Mendoza clone. All blocks are hand-picked, sorted and whole bunch pressed. Pressed juice settled overnight then coarsely racked directly to barrel for a mix of wild and inoculated fermentation. Aged on lees in barrel with minimal stirring.

This wine deliberately eschews the modern style of taut and fine-boned expressions of Chardonnay, offering a defiant reclamation of the middle ground where body, flavour, and palate weight can co-exist with structure, texture, and measured acidity.

Tasting Profile

Characters of flint, nashi pear, white peach, almond meal, macadamia, white flowers and galangal with underlying toasty char, caramel jersey and struck match complexity. Medium-tensile acidity lifts and supports an intensity and heft of flavour and weight. Flavours of roasted cashews, makrut leaf, Scotch Finger biscuits and subtle vanillin interplay with tactile calcareousness underpinning a chalky biscuity texture. A lingering resonance of flavour is focused and enhanced by a precision of acidity and measured fruit.
