This is a great example of a Hunter Chardonnay, 100% from the region. An excellent wine and for $18 instead of $35, it certainly is a steal!

The colour is light to medium, bright yellow – youthful age. The bouquet is loaded with lemon curd, fresh herbs, pencil-wood and other savoury complexities and it’s youthfully fresh and very attractive. Fruit drives it: not heavily worked. There is a suggestion of sweetness early, then a clean, refreshing fruit-driven flavour that drives through the long finish.
