Cox Hunter Valley Chardonnay 2022


Fermentation of this fine Hunter Chardonnay was partly in tank and partly in older French barrels and included some use of wild yeasts. An attractive yellow/lemon hue. This is quite an aromatic spicy style. There are notes of nutmeg, peaches, orange rind, and a mustard seed character, as well as a hint of toasty oak. A supple texture, this is quite seductive and offers a little smoky touch, along with a lingering finish. This is a real crowd-pleaser to enjoy over the next three to five years.
