2023 Hunter Valley Chardonnay


Hunter Valley Chardonnay is sourced from a mixture of sites across the Pokolbin area. All of these sites have slightly different microclimates, and each component brings its unique personality to the blend. In the lead up to the 2023 vintage, there was an abundance of rain in spring which gave great soil moisture heading into the dry months of December and January. The harvest period was relatively stress-free without any adverse conditions such as rain or heat. This vintage has produced well balanced, complex wines with fruit purity and is considered to be an exceptional Hunter Valley vintage. Individual Chardonnay blocks were picked and fermented separately in a combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak barriques. No malolactic fermentation, instead, the wine was held on yeast lees to gain complexity and mouthfeel until blending prior to bottling. Textbook modern, medium-bodied Hunter Valley Chardonnay to be enjoyed with a variety of cuisines. The nose shows a great mixture of citrus, white stone fruit, some oak spice as well as just a hint of solids complexity. The palate is robust with great fruit intensity and texture through the mid-palate, with a soft acid finish.

The sliced apple and lemon with toasted and lightly ashy aromas and flavors come through clearly here. It’s medium-bodied with bright acidity and freshness. Some nougat at the end. (October 2022)
