Since 1884 when Thomas Hardy Nottage began a 60-year career looking after the vineyards, the passion and dedication of the Nottage family has been a treasured part of Hardys history. As cousins to the Hardys, four generations of Nottages helped build the success of our wines and, to this day, precious vines flourish on the hill that bears their name.
Nottage Hill was released in 1967 to honour and celebrate the contribution of Thomas Hardy Nottage. The first wine was a Cabernet Shiraz sourced from Nottage Hill in McLaren Vale. Nottage Hill wines are at the heartland of Hardys portfolio. Known for their consistency, approachable style and balance, Nottage Hill has become a favourite around the world. The 2008 Nottage Hill Chardonnay was crafted from select parcels from premium vineyards in South Eastern Australia. This seamlessly integrated wine captures the rich and fruity varietal characters by careful vineyard selection and winemaking practice ensuring a wine that has exceptional consistency and quality.
On the nose, lifted ripe stone fruit characters of white peach and nectarine with toasty oak hints adding complexity. On the palate, stone fruit and lively citrus characters complemented by vanillin oak and a tight acid structure providing backbone and length. Serve with seafood and chicken dishes.
