Tyrrell's Hunter Valley Chardonnay 2018
Sourced from the younger blocks on and around the Tyrrell’s property of a similar pedigree to our Vat 47 Chardonnay. Dominating soil types are light sandy loams ideal for Hunter Chardonnay. After cold settling for 2 days the juice began fermentation in stainless steel tanks before being transferred and matured in new and older French oak barriques, and spent all of this time on yeast lees to give the palate added complexity and texture.
Textbook modern, medium bodied Hunter Valley Chardonnay that can be enjoyed with a variety of cuisines. The nose shows a great mixture of citrus, white stone fruit, some oak spice as well as just a hint of solids complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with great fruit intensity and texture through the mid-palate, with soft acid on the finish.
