  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Careful fruit selection underpins a style of restraint and finesse. Slow, cool barrel ferments, with 6 months lees maturation in puncheons and hogsheads provides a complex backdrop to naturally intense fruit flavours and mineral acidity. Minimal intervention winemaking techniques highlight fruit quality and showcase classic chardonnay varietal characteristics.

    An engaging palate of grapefruit, white peach and barrel ferment characters is supported by vibrant acid, ensuring this wine has a smooth, persistent length.

    'A refined and tightly structured wine by Liz Silkman, showing layers of complexity and purity of fruit. A complex Hunter Valley Chardonnay.'
    Mike Bennie, Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine

    'Follows the all-conquering 2014. In many ways is not typical Hunter chardonnay, with struck match, grapefruit and lemon; an intense and powerful oak lined by taut acidity.'
