Region: Hunter Valley and Tumbarumba, NSW
Harvested: January and March 2016
Maturation: 100% French Oak Hogs Head for 4 months
Winemaking: Both parcels from Tumbarumba and Hunter Valley, were handpicked and whole bunch pressed before delicate maturation in French Hogs heads.
A selection of Single Vineyard Hunter Valley Chardonnay melds with cool climate Single Vineyard Tumbarumba fruit producing a delicate and textural Chardonnay of exceptional quality. This cellar released wine now displays beautiful secondary nutty characters with complex battonage notes. A rich and full palate, this wine is aging gracefully.
Food recommendation: A fruit driven and elegant example of Chardonnay like this is extremely versatile and can be enjoyed with a wide range of white meat and poultry. Alternatively porcini mushroom fettucine should you like to keep things simple.
