Hera is the Queen of the Olympian Gods. She is known as the protector of women, and the Goddess of marriage and birth. Hera is usually overshadowed by her husband Zeus. However, even before her marriage she ruled over the heavens and the Earth.

For this reason she is commonly referred to as ‘The Queen of the Heavens.’

Hera Chardonnay is a limited edition, barrel selection from our favoured French barrel Coopers. The handpicked grapes are sourced from low yielding, dry farmed, old vine Mendoza Chardonnay. The wine is barrel fermented in tight grained French oak by wild yeast and completes a 100% malolactic fermentation.

5 Stars - Michael Cooper

 

The Hera Chardonnay like her namesake is a powerful wine, sweet fruited and textural which hits sublime notes even in her youth. Appealing to drink young the complexities and characters will continue to evolve for many years in the bottle…. enjoy.
