Pooles Rock Chardonnay 2016

RRP: $45.00

The grapes for this Chardonnay were sourced from our
vineyard in the Broke/Fordwich sub region of the Hunter
Valley. The fruit was hand harvested in the cool of the early
morning to preserve quality and was immediately pressed at
our Pokolbin winery. The cloudy juice was transferred to
300-litre French oak barrels where fermentation took place.
After Fermentation fortnightly lees stirring gave added
complexity. The wine was then matured for six months
before final blending and bottling.

Additional Information
Vintage Conditions

The 2016 vintage is regarded as a classic Hunter Valley vintage, with ideal warm growing conditions leading up to vintage, the vines were healthy and had plenty of foliage. A series of storms in January delivered a large amount of rainfall but the fruit held up really well. Good vineyard management and winemaking has resulted in some of the best wines we’ve made, with the white wines in particular having great intensity of flavours.
