These vines were planted in 1991 and are completely dry grown in the light, sandy soil of the Belford vineyard. The northern-most of the Tyrrell’s Hunter Valley vineyards and teh furthest from the Brokenback mountain range. Celebrating this unique vineyard, we are offering the award winning 2017 Belford Chardonnay, showcasing the characterful, premium wine this vineyard produces in outstanding vintages such as this.
A complex nose of fruit, oak and a slight “solids” character. A powerful palate with the fruit characters being balanced well with the oak and mid palate grainy texture. Kept fresh by a lively acid profile, a benefit of no malolactic fermentation.
