Chardonnay always seems such an unlikely grape for the Hunter and yet it over-delivers time after time. And here we have yet another example of just that.
The colour here is a touch more green/gold. Immediate aromas of nutty notes, grilled cashews and more – touches of nutmeg and cinnamon with good oak integration. Stonefruit, peaches; it is a pleasing, simple wine, in the very best sense, but one with a lot of flavour. Attractive texture, seductive and good length here. This will drink beautifully over the next few years – be in no rush.
