Usher Tinkler Reserve Chardonnay 2021


One of my go-to Hunter Valley Chardonnays, there is a lot to like about this Usher Tinkler Reserve Chardonnay. A big bottle, the wax seal, it all oozes class. I must admit I love the label too. 

It's great to see an acknowledgment of the First Nations people on the label too - Wonnarua country. Nicely done Usher.

From a cooler year, white nectarines and white peaches drive this Chardonnay. There is not as much fruit concentration as previously seen, it is leaner and more pristine. Delicious butterscotch, flinty and match stick notes unfurl. A lemony drive gathers the troops before ruby grapefruit cuts in and has the last say on a long and vibrant finish. Picked early to retain natural acidity, it's a terrific wine and one I'd happily keep filling the glass with as the sun slowly falls from the sky. And maybe I did.

Drink to five years+
