96 Points - Halliday Wine Companion 2021
The oldest vines on the Home Hill vineyard provide the fruit for this Reserve Chardonnay. A warm, dry year resulted a depth of citrus and white stone fruit flavours while the natural cool-climate of the region ensured a focused, linear acidity. Lemon meringue, white flowers and some hint of shortcrust pastry match beautifully with new French oak on the palate to create a delightful balanced cool-climate Chardonnay.

Home Hill Winery is nestled in the picturesque Huon Valley, a short thirty-minute drive south of Hobart. With stunning views of the surrounding vines, pastures, livestock and mountains, we are a country retreat where our guests enjoy the quiet peacefulness of this paradise away from the hustle and bustle. Our award-winning wines and delicious menu, reflect our proud Tasmanian heritage. Rosemary and Terry Bennett, the proprietors of Home Hill, look down on the vineyard from their home, pinch themselves, and wonder how their relaxing hobby farm of six rows of vines has turned into an award-winning vineyard that produces some of Australia’s top quality Pinot Noir. Apples were once produced on the site, along with memories of the years gone by when their three young children were placed in bulk bins to entertain themselves while they harvested their crops of apples. Fast forward 27 years, and Home Hill is one of the most popular and well-loved destinations in the Huon Valley.
