Vintage Conditions – 2011 was an outstanding vintage in the Hunter and was every grape farmers dream – good yields of ripe fruit in pristine condition. The growing season saw above average rainfall which provided for good canopy growth and a fruitful flower set. January and February were hot and dry enabling the grapes to be harvested in prime condition with great sugar and flavour levels.

The grapes for this Chardonnay wine were harvested on the morning of 5th of February then crushed, chilled and gently pressed off. The cloudy juice was transferred to French oak barrels, and underwent a quick and hot fermentation. The wines sat in barrel on their yeast lees, with monthly stirring, before being fined, filtered and bottled in August.
