2018 was the second consecutive classic vintage in the Hunter Valley, one we believe that will be recalled fondly in years ahead. A vintage typified by warm to hot and dry conditions, most white varieties were harvested by January prior to some record heat days in February. With little threat of rainfall, our Shiraz, Semillon and Chardonnay were harvested with the intent of expressing vineyard rather than vintage characteristics, resulting in energetic reds with a vitality that will last for a decades.
