2019 Vat 63 Chardonnay Semillon

$60.00
Clear

Sourced entirely from the Pokolbin Hills vineyard, this year’s blend is made up of 65% Chardonnay (planted in 1980) and 35% Semillon (planted in 1970). The Pokolbin Hills vineyard is located at the base of Pokolbin Mountain. Featuring ideal sandy loam soils, it is one of our top vineyard sites. The 2019 vintage in the Hunter Valley was another high quality year across all varieties and is a stellar follow up to 2018. Continued dry conditions meant cropping levels were slightly lower than normal however all of the fruit was in perfect condition with intense concentration. The Chardonnay and Semillon grapes were harvested on 24 January. Both of the varieties were vinified separately before being blended in June and then bottled in July. The Chardonnay component spent its time in mostly older French oak barriques and the Semillon was made in a traditional unwooded style in stainless steel.

This is a wonderfully balanced white wine, showing rich Chardonnay fruit characters such as white peach and a hint of oak. This richness is curbed by the citrus core of Semillon that gives the wine its’s length acid structure. The lees work from the Chardonnay also gives the wine an added layer of complexity.
