2018 marked the second consecutive vintage in the Hunter Valley that has produced outstanding wines. A vintage typified by warm, dry conditions, the 2018 growing season was similar to 2017 only more compressed. We made bold picking decisions and have been rewarded with white wines that have retained a delicate line of acidity reflecting true vineyard and varietal character. On first taste of the red wines in barrel, they consistently demonstrate a vibrancy and class last seen in 2014. An exciting Hunter Valley vintage.
