Scotchmans Hill was named by Scottish immigrants who settled the Mount Bellarine area in the 1840s. The viticulture began in 1842 when the first planting of vines was undertaken on the surrounding Barrabool Hills. Various clones of Chardonnay, harvested off vines over twenty years of age, each yielding a kilogram and a half of fruit, are grown to clay volcanic soil with basalt and limestone subsoils. Crushed and pressed to fermenters, the musts are racked, inoculated and run to barrel for vinification at moderate temperatures, treated to a regular lees stirring without any malolactic. The finished wine is matured in a selection of seasoned and new Vosges French oak barriques for a year before bottling.
Mid golden hue. An intense and complex nose displaying stone fruit, melons and fig with cashew and creamy barrel ferment characters balanced by a spicy oak background. The palate is tight and juicy yet refined with nectarine, melon and citrus fruits. A mineral backbone showing mealy notes, spices and nutty, creamy oak flavours on a long and lingering back palate. Scotchmans Hill is a Chardonnay of great structure and complexity.
