Range Margan White Label

The wines from this range are all made from single vineyards, distinctive winery batches and in outstanding vintages only. This limited range will vary from year to year depending on the vintage conditions and how each variety performed. Grapes sourced for the White Label wines are from the most distinguished parcels of older vines. These wines stand out in the winery for their unique style and are selected for this range on that basis.

Margan Limited Release White Label Chardonnay

Ripe full bodied fruit is the norm from the Hunter and it takes a lot of winemaking to turn this full bodied wine into a more complex balanced and textured wine of interest.

 

This wine was picked at lower sugar to keep its leaner structure and citrus overtones.

The grapes for this wine are picked from forty year old vines growing on the red basalt volcanic clay of our Broke Fordwich Timbervines Vineyard.   With an average yield of only half a tonne per acre the fruit for this wine is intensely concentrated in flavour.

Margan Limited Release White Label Barbera

Our Barbera was the first planted in the Hunter Valley and originates from Italian root stock.

The wine shows lifted aromas of herbs, berries and earth and a great combination of Italian varietal definition with Hunter terroir influences.
