NEW RELEASE - 'indie' 2011 Vintage Brut Cuvee - AVAILABLE TO ORDER NOW
Hunter Valley, NSW
Sourced from three Hunter Valley vineyards. Barrel fermented and further matured for 9 months in French oak.
The ‘XYZ’ brand wines constitute modern styles of Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz. New Generation wines from the Hunter Valley.
Chardonnay grapes were sourced from three established Hunter Valley vineyards, two in Pokolbin and one in Broke.
2018 has proven to be a great Hunter vintage. Hot dry days, but not exceeding 41 degrees celcius, produced even ripening which resulted in grapes with impressive sugar/acid balance and loads of flavour.
A lovely light straw in colour, aromas of stone-fruit, including yellow and white peach, nectarine and cashew nuts. Toasty French oak supports the flavoursome fruit profile on the palate, which is nicely balanced and finishes with very good persistence.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
Fuller flavoured seafood, chicken and pasta cuisine.
