Expression Chardonnay Domaine Saint Hilaire

A crisp and elegant unoaked Chardonnay

Domaine Saint Hilaire was one of the first local vineyards to plant the Chardonnay grape variety which has risen in popularity and quality to rival the wines from traditional (much more expensive) regions.  

Our Chardonnay is harvested at night and fermented at a cool temperature to maximise freshness and the characteristic fruit flavours.
