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.

2022 Halliday Wine Companion Review

A meld of lower and upper Hunter sources. A delicious estate release. More forward, lees-driven and as a result, plumper than usual. Candied citrus rind, a little toast, lemon balm, tonic and quince paste. While more approachable than the traditional status quo, it is all the better for it at this entry point.
