A glorious single vineyard Chardonnay from the Hunter Valley.
100% Chardonnay from Mckelvey Vineyard which was planted in 1998 in Pokolbin, Hunter Valley.

Hand harvested, whole-bunch pressed, bar rel fermented in deluxe French oak gives creamy softness, building in layers of class and style throughout .
