Belford Single Vineyard Chardonnay

These vines were planted in 1991 and are completely dry grown in the light, sandy soil of the Belford vineyard. Fruit was hand picked and then basket pressed before cold settling in stainless steel for two days. Fermentation began in stainless steel tanks before the partially fermented juice was transferred to new and seasoned French oak barriques to finish fermentation and mature for another eight months. 

The nose shows complex, sweet chardonnay fruit and a hint of oak. The palate is balanced between primary fruit flavours and secondary flavours derived from the minimal solids ferment and extended yeast lees contact, the result of which is the complex texture and mouth feel of this wine.

Gary Walsh, The Wine Front 13 October 2017

95 Points - Plenty of struck match, classic Tyrrell’s ‘lime spider’, a little spice and biscuit, some cut fennel. Light and fine boned, but flavoursome, with a subtle vanilla creaminess, flinty texture, cool acidity, and a juicy and toasty finish of excellent length. Wonderful Hunter Chardonnay. Flavour and finesse.

James Halliday Wine Companion 2018

95 Points - Coming off a difficult vintage, gee this is showing well. It has flavour, as in from the fruit not just the oak and leesy characters, which are here too. Complex, layered with poached quince and ginger and sun-bleached hay, yet tight. Zesty and bright with a lightening rod of acidity so this needs more time.
