Our Saxonvale Vineyard has 40 year old chardonnay vines planted on the volcanic soil of the Fordwich Sill. Low yielding with shaded canopies creates fine flavoured grapes. The intricate nature of the wine provides for interesting aged complexities if you can wait. This modern Australian chardonnay shows the perfect balance of primary fruit flavour and fermentation derived aromas.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The extended time spent in bottle has resulted in a multifarious wine with great textural qualities. This lends itself to a creamy mouth filling palate typical of an aged Hunter Chardonnay. Lemon Curd, Almond Essence, Toasted Cashews. Baked Nectarine, grapefruit, Creamy oak.
Winemaker Notes
The 2011 vintage was an excellent vintage in the Hunter with warm and dry ripening conditions throughout. The grapes for this chardonnay were picked in the cool of the morning. The wine was barrel fermented in French oak barriques and given extended lees contact with regular stirring to build mouthfeel and complexity. After bottling this wine was cellared in a temperature controlled environment to ensure graceful aging.
