Norman Hardie Riesling 2015


Consistently great Riesling in the perfect off-dry style. Strikes the perfect balance of sugar, acid, alcohol, and lime flavour. The rich texture and long finish might make you think the wine is sweeter than it actually is, but there’s no cloying sugar on the tongue. (4.5/5)

Norman Hardie Cuvée de Roche 2014


This is probably my favourite style of Chardonnay, bursting with super bright lemon aromas and flavours. There is very minimal oak character, instead lots of fresh, tart acid to finish. One of the few oaked Chardonnays I would sip on its own without food. (4/5)

Norman Hardie Winery


Norman Hardie Winery is one of the most critically acclaimed wineries in the County. For over 10 years they have been producing Burgundian-style Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays, as well as some lower-priced bottles like Riesling and Cabernet Franc. The patio overlooking the vineyard is probably one of the busiest spots to grab lunch on the weekend. Their speciality is Neapolitan-style pizza, and it’s one of the most authentic iterations in the County.
