The Eleanor – Chardonnay | 2021

Ripe stone fruits of golden peaches and apricots intermingled with lemon zest and minerality on the nose. The palate displays structured acidity, notes of apples and prominent lemon and lime with hints of walnut. A long and lingering finish.

About The Eleanor

The Eleanor Chardonnay honours the matriarch of the Finlayson family who, with her husband Maurice, owned Hartenberg Estate (then “Montagne”) from 1948 to 1977. Strong and resolute in character, yet always sophisticated and poised, who better personifies our super-premium Chardonnay?
