Winemaker's Notes

A wine of flavour and finesse, purposely blended quality fruit from two exceptional. NSW wine regions. Hunter Valley, offered generous fruit intensity. Tumbarumba contributed a delicate mineral purity. Both gently harvested and whole bunch pressed prior to cool fermentation followed by subtle battonage and maturation in Francois Freres oak from Saint-Roain in Burgundy. The result is a well-balanced wine which is complex, rich and refined. Drink now or Cellar up to 8 years

Wine Show Notes

4.5 Stars - WineState Magazine 2019 - Ned Goodwin - 92 Silver - A blend of Hunter and high country Tumbarumba fruit (47%), this is a pointed, mid-weighted chardonnay sacrificing little flavour across a tense carapace of bright acidity, generous nutty oak and mineral-cladding. This beams stone and tropical fruit flavours long. Seamlessly made. Bronze - Winewise 2018 Small Vigneron Awards, Bronze - 2018 Cairns Show Wine Awards 86 Points,
