Forest Hill Block 8 Chardonnay

Forest Hill is a highly regarded producer from Mount Barker. His wines are not often available in the Eastern States. I was fortunate to be able to taste a 2005 Block 8 Chardonnay.

The palate tastes predominantly of stone fruit. However, for 30 year old grapes, I would have expected more depth and complexity. The wine is well made and its acidity suggests good cellaring potential, but there simply is no compelling reason to have it in your collection.
