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.
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.
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.
A beautiful, lighter style of Chardonnay from winemakers Damien and Jodie. Packed with florals, white spice and dried herbs on the nose. On the palate it is an unctuous, totally textural wine, with almonds and butterscotch and an underlying lovely citrus line of acidity.
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.
