  • THE BRIEF
  • Tomboy Hill is a tiny vineyard planted in 1984 within viewing distance (2 km north) of the Eureka Rebellion site.

    The vineyard is planted in the Burgundian mode, 1m x1.2m grid and low-trellised, and is still, by necessity, hand-pruned, hand-sprayed and hand-picked. Ballarat's climatic similarities with Burgundy influence the mode of viticulture and wine-making, with only chardonnay and pinot noir being grown.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Pale straw in colour with a delicate, tight, minerally nose that opens beautifully to reveal lovely aromas of white peach. The palate is surprisingly full-bodied, fresh and rich yet crunchy, while the finish is quite textural and long, with an appealing acid line. A wine that will age gracefully and evolve into a Meursault-style Chardonnay.

    A limited release of 75 dozen, give or take a few bottles (3 barriques). The similarity of the fruit intensity to that of the '14 Rebellion Chardonnay is uncanny, it has profound depth, built around a deep well of very special acidity - which gives the fruit free rein to express itself, as it does
