2017 Wine Companion reviews
2016 Helen’s Hill ‘Breachley Block’ Chardonnay
James Halliday – Published on 01 Aug 2017 

Hand-picked, three clones, wild-fermented in French oak (28% new); 10mth maturation. A fragrant bouquet and perfectly poised palate, with grapefruit and minerally acidity the drivers of a long, lingering finish and fresh aftertaste. 95 Points
2015 Helen’s Hill ‘Long Walk’ Pinot […]

Mike Bennie, The Winefront. July 13th 2016.

2013 Helen’s Hill Estate Range View Reserve Yarra Valley Pinot Noir

Helen’s Hill single clone reserve wines are very good wines, and very interesting in their focus on these single clone expressions – here, the D4V5 clone is singled out, as compared/contrasted to the Old Block Reserve Pinot Noir which […]

James Halliday August 2016

“Punches well above its weight, the keynote being purity, normally the preserve of far more expensive wines. The colour is still in full primary mode, the palate and the finish as fresh as a daisy. Drink by 2033. 92 points”

James Halliday – Published on 01 Aug 2017

“Excellent depth and clarity of crimson-purple colour; a complex, rich and substantial medium to full-bodied wine; black fruits, cedar, earth and warm spices; the tannins are supple, and lengthen the finish and aftertaste. Drink by 2035, 95 points.”

Huon Hooke – 12/8/2016. The Real Review

Good depth and hue of colour, the wine sweetly ripe and clean, fragrant and attractive in bouquet and flavour. The palate has weight and depth, good soft tannins in abundance, and charmingly aromatic red cherry and floral nuances. It’s fairly plain […]
