Suzanne Little was previously winemaker for Rosemount Estate where she was responsible for their range of premium Chardonnay. Her aim with the Little Gem is to make an approachable Chardonnay that is balanced and delicious.
The grapes for this wine were picked from our 40 year old vines grown in the ancient Fordwich Sill. These low yeilding mature vines produce ripe, concentrated fruit which results in a wine with excellent regional and varietal characters. This wine was partially fermented in French oak Barriques for 6 months.
A progressive and elegant style of Hunter Valley Chardonnay. Aromas of melon and preserved citrus peel are layered with toasty oak to complete the nose. The palate is long and restrained with notes of citrus and creamy mouth feel delivering a wine with great persistence and body.
This single vineyard wine is beautiful example of the new style of Hunter Chardonnay. An elegant and beautifully crafted wine made with a judicious use of French oak.
This chardonnay is picked early to retain natural acidity and citrus flavours. Unique structure, blended with a small portion of unoaked wine to increase the fresh lifted fruit on the palate. The result of a 5 year discovery of Hunter Valley Chardonnay.
Silkman won Best Chardonnay in Australia for their 2014 Reserve in the Halliday Chardonnay Challenge and this vintage follows on beautifully. Very much in the contemporary style of Hunter Chardonnay; elegant, restrained French oak, lean mineral fruit characters, persistence of flavour.
The wine shows notes of peach and citrus with a crisp finish brought on by less oak and more emphasis on elegance and balance. It is drinking beautifully now and can be stored for 3-5 years if needed.
New to the Wine House but from a rich viticultural history dating back to 1972. Located on the former Pooles Rock property in Broke, this vineyard continues its remarkable history of producing very notable Chardonnay. This is a stunner.
From 30 year old, low yielding vines this is an intensely citrus, beautifuly structured wine. A classic Hunter Valley Semillon that will go for 20+ years.
Lifted aromas of citrus and lemongrass are layered over mineral zesty notes. The palate is long and refreshing displaying primary fruit character of citrus and white peach.
