Hand picked from a dry grown vineyard in the Hunter Valley sub region of Belford, the wine commenced fermentation in stainless steel before finishing its time in French oak for seven months.
This wine delivers some oak, and for those seeking a fresh style, perhaps this may not be you. But in terms of what is in the glass, this is a very decent wine.
Oak aromas are there but so too are nougat, cashew nuts, peachy characters and some creamy butter.
All these well developed characters greet you on the palate. A very well balanced wine with lovely length. No too heavy but a great wine to accompany pan fried or roast chicken dishes.
