Background

Vineyard Notes
Chardonnay grapes were sourced from three established Hunter Valley vineyards, two in Pokolbin and one in Broke.
Winemaking
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.
Tasting Notes
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
Short—medium term.
Food Matches
Fuller flavoured seafood, chicken and pasta cuisine.
