Hunter Valley, NSW

Vintage Conditions
Vintage 2018 was another strong vintage in the Hunter Valley. Dry, warm conditions that were similar to 2003 meant cropping levels were smaller than average and produced wines with robust flavours and softer acids. 2018 was one of the earliest Chardonnay harvests we have seen, starting on January 12.

Vat 47 Chardonnay come entirely from our Short Flat vineyard, where the original Chardonnay vines were planted by Murray Tyrrell in the late 1960s. This vineyard features ideal sandy soils and is dry grown.

Winemaker’s Notes
All of the fruit was handpicked before immediately being basket pressed, the juice was then cold settled for two days before being racked to another stainless steel tank to begin fermentation. The fermenting juice was then transferred to French oak barriques to complete fermentation and maturation before bottling in October.

Tasting Notes
The nose is delicate, showing some nice florals and white stone fruit with only a hint of oak. The palate is where the power of the Short Flat vineyard comes to the fore, exhibiting an intensity and length not often seen in other Chardonnays. Impeccably balanced between primary fruit characters, some secondary lees components and the fine-grained French oak.
