This chardonnay is produced from grapes grown on vines, which thrive in the sandy loam soils of the Hunter Valley. Following harvest in February 2015, the grapes were crushed and fermented at our winery in Pokolbin. A small portion of the wine was barrel fermented and matured in French oak hogsheads before being bottled in late 2015.
The 2015 vintage is regarded as a classic Hunter Valley vintage, with ideal warm growing conditions leading up to vintage followed by a burst of wet weather in late February. Good vineyard management and winemaking has resulted in some of the best wines we’ve made.
