A glorious single vineyard Chardonnay from the Hunter Valley.

100% Chardonnay from Mckelvey Vineyard which was planted in 1998 in Pokolbin, Hunter Valley. Grapes were hand-picked into slotted bins and chilled overnight to 5°C, and early the next morning whole bunches were pressed, with gentle juice extract ion in a centre membrane bag press. Juice was immediately transferred to oak for 100% barrel fermentation, with an equal balance of wild- ferment and pure yeast inoculation. A taste-determined proportion of malo- fermentation, and extended time sur-lees for 7 months with bâtonnage combined to generate beautiful , refined complexity and structure.
