One of our signature wines, this Chardonnay is named after our daughter Clare who makes great music and loves this wine. This classic Hunter wine exhibits the typical stone fruit and apple acidity of the variety. It is a medium-oak style having been matured for 7 months in new French-oak barrels. Chardonnay can be paired with a wide range of foods. The long finish makes it fantastic with Asian foods, seafood, roast chicken and pasta dishes
This variety has been grown on our estate since 1983. Pinot Grigio (and its French namesake Pinot Gris) is now a very popular wine style. 'Gris' and 'Grigio' are terms used in Australia to reflect different styles made from the same grape. This Pinot Grigio is a fuller-bodied style. It exhibits flavours of quince and baked apple and has a refreshing palate. It blends well with salads, pastas and seafood and is an excellent combination with white meats including veal and chicken. It is also an excellent aperitif.
As with all our wines, it has been made with great care, and we hope you enjoy sharing the fruits of our labour.
This variety has been grown on the estate since the early 1980s. Pinot Gris (or Grigio in Italian) is now a very popular wine style. 'Gris' and 'Grigio' are terms used in Australia to reflect different styles made from the same grape. When picked, the grapes are a purple-red colour.
These grapes were picked in the pre-dawn hours and the skins were left on for a short period of time. This has produced a wine with a delicate apricot hue; the aromas of apple and apricot balance the natural sweetness and refreshing acidity on the palate. Pair this delicious wine with spicy seafood dishes or an antipasto.
...Sémillon: a French word pronouncd Sem-ee-yon
A crisp pale straw coloured wine with light herbal notes on the nose. Fresh lemon and lime persist throughout balanced by an underlying steely acidity. True to the style of a classic Hunter Valley Semillon demonstrating good length and structure.
Our 2017 Verdelho typifies the classic Hunter style of wild pear and Granny Smith apples; a lovely balanced wine with a crip acid finish. This wine is fresh in flavour and does not have the sweetness of some Verdelhos, there is a delicious finish on the back palate.
