The pinnacle of cool climate Chardonnay viticulture, an intensely flavoured wine in full bloom, made from a very strict selection of the finest parcels, assembled around a backbone of the highly prestigious, low yielding House Block. Produced only in years where the quality is deemed to be exceptional, Coldstream Reserve displays attractive cool climate characters of stonefruit and citrus. Oak plays an important role, but does not dominate. Secondary characters of barrel ferments and soil grape solids impart minerality, adding further layers of complexity.
The culmination of a strict selection process, where the quality of wine is without peer. In addition to the twenty year old House and G Blocks, Briarston Vineyard provides an outstanding resource of French Bernard clone, which adds elegance and length. Gentle handling practices, including whole bunch pressings are carried out, every parcel is treated to a course of barrel ferments which adds richness, texture and layers of complexity. Upon completion, components are matured ten months in a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels, without any malolactic to maintain natural acidity, before assembling into the finished wine.
TASTING NOTES
Pale straw, green hue. The nose shows attractive white peach, quince and citrus notes with underlying toasty oak and minerality. A tightly structured wine with fine acid line and good length. The palate exhibits attractive stonefruit and citrus combined with cashew nut barrel ferment characters. Flinty, minerally notes are evident in the background and will continue to develop as the wine ages.

About the Coldstream Hills Winery
Since its first vintage in 1985, Coldstream Hills has grown to be one of the Australia’s leading small wineries, with a reputation for producing an outstanding range of wines
Coldstream Hills was established in 1985 by James and Suzanne Halliday. As a winemaker for over 30 years, James Halliday expressed his passion through involvements with other winemakers, devoting his time to crafting some of Australia's most memorable labels. From its initial vintage of 450 cases, Coldstream Hills has grown to become one of Australia's leading small wineries, its wines sold in some 16 countries and a reputation out of all proportion to its size. Coldstream Hills maintains its small winery essence with most of the wine literally being hand made. Situated in the cool and beautiful Yarra Valley, about one hour's drive east of Melbourne, its steep, close-planted vineyards have become a signature of the region. So too have its wines (most notably Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs) which reflect a climate cooler than Bordeaux and a little warmer than Burgundy. Coldstream Hills»
