Next Time to Taste at Hannay

HANNAY WINES

Experience: 3/5
Wines: 3/5 (Yet to taste)

There was a mix up by Hannay Wines that meant I could not taste at the time I had arranged. I did get to see the Cellar building and offices. The winery is off the Highlands Road in Elgin that I was already familiar with having tasted at South Hill, Oneiric and Highlands Road earlier in the day. The approach was down lane through mature apple orchards that made for an idyllic setting.

There was no obvious sign when I arrived but the large tan building looked like a Cellar and I made my way to the side where I introduced myself to Anne in the offices. She was very helpful and contacted Elzaan. Whilst I could not taste any wines, I was given 2 bottles of Chardonnay (2015 and 2016 vintages) and a bottle of Cabernet Franc. The 2016 Chardonnay was unlabelled – labelling was happening on the next day.

I should have liked to have tried the Sauvignon Blanc too and, frustratingly, I forgot to buy at the Peregrine Farm Stall on my return journey. The farm stall stocks almost all of the Elgin Valley wines. I shall have to do next time I pass.

Meanwhile, I shall add to this post when I have tasted the wines. All wines produced by Hannay wines have 4½ stars in the 2018 Platter’s Guide so I shall look forwards.
