Expert Reviews

96 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionHand-picked, chilled, free-run juice pressed to French oak (40% new) for cool fermentation and 10 months maturation. An ultra-elegant and fine chardonnay with grapefruit, melon and white peach fruit in a seamless stream running through the long, perfectly balanced palate, the oak having been effortlessly absorbed.

Who made it?

Forest Hill holds a firm place in Western Australian wine industry history as it is the oldest cool climate vineyard in the Great Southern region. This family owned winery was founded in 1965 by Tony and Betty Pearse when the vineyard was planted with Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon. Forest Hill passed through the hands of the late Robert Holmes a Court before ending up with its current owners, the Lyons family. Today, the 95 hectares of vineyards are planted to varietals such as Riesling, Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. All wines are made from estate grown fruit by winemaker Liam Carmody, who has been with Forest Hill since 2008. The goal is to produce wines with correct varietal definition whilst expressing the distinct regional character of the Great Southern region.
