2019 marked the third consecutive vintage in the Hunter Valley that has produced outstanding wines. A vintage typified by warm, dry conditions, the 2019 growing season was similar to 2018 only a little warmer. 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. Another exciting Hunter Valley vintage.
