Expert Reviews

94 Points - Gary Walsh - The Wine FrontHunter Chablis through and through. It’s delicate and articulate, pure and particularly long, but does deliver a fine amount of citrus and green melon flavour, with a wisp of smokiness and cinnamon. Beautiful clean acidity, and a limey tang through the finish. So nicely done. I’m impressed. Very. Best served with a light chill, and a bucket of tiger prawns.
93 Points - David Bicknell - Halliday's Wine CompanionSourced from the Travena Vineyard planted in '77 on Hermitage Road. Bright, quartz-green. While still quite tight, there's a more fruit-forward prominence to the Hunter vineyard wine. Peach skin notes, nectarine and preserved lemon. Greater depth and weight, but not weight per se. At 12.5% alcohol there's sensible elegance and a future to look forward to.
90 Points - Huon Hooke - The Real ReviewLight straw colour with a savoury, yeasty, dry-herb bouquet. The wine is fresh and fruity, grapy and attractive in the mouth, with tight-focused flavour and subtle, refined, taut structure. The finish is very dry and appetising. It needs time and is rather closed, but not as closed as the same maker's Tumbarumba chardonnay. This wine is softer, broader and less acidic.

How's it taste?

It's a wine befitting its dress-circle location, with a finely honed nose that instantly reminds you of the crushed seashells of Chablis, while the palate is more-rounder and generous, delivering creamy layers of nectarine, lime peel and buttered French toast.

How was it made?

An impeccably balanced and sophisticated wine. Subtle white fleshed fruit complimented by mealy aromas and hints of struck match. Ripe white peach and melon with hints of nectarine and soft French oak nuances held together with a core of vibrant citrus acidity. A perfect pairing with chicken or rabbit with rich sauces.
