Winemaker's Notes

Show Reserve Hunter Valley Chardonnay is an outstanding example of its region and variety. Its bright appearance and lively straw colour reflect the finesse that is evident throughout the wine. The aromas shows white peach and creamy notes, with an underlying savoury character, resulting from the oak and lees maturation. The palate exudes a wealth of rich textured fruit with melon and fresh red apple flavours knitting seamlessly into the cashew-like oak and creamy lees flavours. The wine has an elegant, dry finish, with sustained fruit and excellent length. In bottle, the wine will reward cellaring for up to 10 years.
