2019 McKelvey Chardonnay

Single Vineyard Range

2019 McKelvey Vineyard Chardonnay

Variety:     100% Chardonnay       

Vineyard:  McKelvey Vineyard

Region:     Pokolbin, Hunter Valley               

Vine age:  Vines planted in 1998                                                 

Tasting Note

The soils are rich red-brown clay loam overlying a base of powdery limestone, on a gentle hillside with a north to north-west aspect.

Colour is a pearl-like shimmer of chiffon-lemon-yellow tinged with opaline light green.

Aromas are intense and sophisticated, ripe citrus and stone fruits mixing with myrtle and verbena, tantalisingly elegant layers of barrel ferment giving unobtrusive dimensions of spice with the gentle fumé elements of sandalwood, mineral, and gun-flint simmering in the background.

The palate shows a ripe fruit length, seductively textured, nuanced with creamy, nutty, and ethereal mealy softness like nougat and fine pistachio.Oak is very subtle, almost saline, contributing a sustained savoury lightness plus a final dusting of spice and vanilla.

2018 Hunter Valley Shiraz Viognier

2018 Hunter Valley Shiraz Viognier

Variety:  Shiraz (95%) | Viognier (5%)
Region:  Hunter Valley
Vine Age:  40+ years old

Tasting Notes

Brilliant scarlet-red in colour and brim-full with ripeness, this S/V shows the luxuriant completeness of co-fermenting, combining the Shiraz aromatic richness of soft black-cherry (95%) with floral jasmine-like perfumes of Viognier (5%). This profusion of fruit combines on the palate with plush unity: dense yet satiny smooth, blackberry and cola-like with milk-chocolate softness, given extra sheen and depth from fine French oak, completing this opulent balance with a foundation of fine-spice vanilla and cinnamon.

The 2018 vintage gave us stellar harvesting conditions and fruit condition, this Shiraz-Viognier has appeal for immediate drinking or medium term cellaring.

Drink: Now to 2025 

Food Match: Slow cooked meats, pizza, or risotto.

2019 Hunter Valley Chardonnay

2019 Hunter Valley Chardonnay

Variety:     100% Chardonnay
Region:     Hunter Valley
Vine Age:  20+ years old

Tasting Notes

This wine shows bright colour and exceptional green hue. Aromatically, the fruit is vibrant with lovely complexity, revealing fine layers of nectarine and pineapple, with fine perfumes of white fig and yellow melon, plus alluring hints of cashew, seasalt and deluxe French oak, adding a delicate fumé and vanilla spiciness.

The palate reveals the wonderful elemental nature of wild-yeast barrel fermentation; the flavours are ample yet powder-soft, with white-melon and white-fig textures mixing with the tang of pineapple and nectarine, lasting with a yoghurt-like brightness and focus onto a long finish.

Drink: Now to 2030.

Food Match: Shellfish, poultry dishes, and soft cheeses.

Pario ( Verb - Latin): ‘Bring forth’

The true varietal characters of musk and green apple offer bright, refreshing aromas lifting out of the glass. Nutty spice and the waxy textures of macadamia and barley carry through on the palate with the fruit flavours of white peach, pear and lime zest. A lovely balance of fruit and exotic spice that complements a wide variety of foods and appeals instantly.

2018 Hunter Valley Semillon

2018 Hunter Valley Semillon

Variety:  100% Semillon
Region:  Hunter Valley
Vine Age:  Planted in 1968

Vineyard : Keith Tulloch Estate

Tasting Notes

A classic Semillon pure and fine, with bright green straw colour highlights. Aromas are zesty and intense, brimming with lemonade, lemongrass, ripe lime and soft orange grapefruit. Delicate floral hints of green-clover flower build nuanced complexity. The flavours are precise and detailed, showing primary juicy lemon brightness with satiny length, finishing with a slight pithy tang and crunchy, energetically fresh persistence.

There is a great cellaring future ahead. Beautiful harmony will begin to develop within 1-2 years, while 5 to 10 years will elevate this regal youngster into a classic Hunter Semillon.

Drink: Now to 2028.
Food Match: Fresh oysters, and prawns.
