Mount Eyre Chardonnay 2021
- Hunter Valley -
A reserve bottling of the best 2 barrels of this old-vine chardonnay from our Three Ponds Vineyard in Broke.
Vineyard Three Ponds Vineyard, Broke
Winemaker Andrew Spinaze
Inclement weather precluded hand picking. Fermented in used and new French oak. A fine meld of tension and mid-weighted generosity. Canned peach, dried mango, kumquat and nougat. Typical of the riot of fruit exhibited by the Hunter’s better examples, strung across a bow of pungent mineral and stylish oak.
