Background

Vineyard Notes
Chardonnay grapes were sourced from two established Hunter Valley vineyards, one in Pokolbin and the other one in the Upper Hunter.
Winemaking
A great vintage for Hunter whites is 2019!! Moderate temperatures led to very even ripening although a couple of weeks earlier than usual. Great flavours and sugar/acid balance.
Tasting Notes
Colouring of light straw, aromas of nectarine and white peach stone-fruit. Mild toasty oak sits under and in harmony with the fruit profile on the palate. Great freshness from the slatey acidity and great drive on the finish.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
Medium term—8 years +.
Food Matches
Fresh cooked seafood, oysters & prawns.
