Expert Reviews

93 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionThis wine had the tough job of proving its worth in the midst of a thicket of top class Yarra Valley chardonnays from an enchanted vintage, pale green in hue compared to the bright, full yellow-green of this wine and its gentle stone fruit flavours. I don't want to disparage this hot-region chardonnay, which is also from a very good vintage and has been well made.

How's it taste?

Montvalley might be a know name, but this Chardonnay sure feels like modern Hunter white. It's plump through the middle (hello Hunter) but still there's a fresh finish too. Goldilocks please pass the Chardonnay porridge

Who made it?

John and Deirdre Colvin bought 150 acres of vacant land at Mitchells Road, Mount View in the Hunter Valley in January 1998. Having looked at dozens of properties over the previous decade, none had appealed until they saw Montvalley. The name Montvalley is a derived name, and reflects the fact that the vineyard is nestled in a beautiful valley in the midst of the Brokenback Ranges. The name Colvin means valley (col) of the vines (vin). So the name Montvalley reflects the area and the origins of John’s family. Montvalley is set in a spectacularly beautiful mountain valley that is hidden away in one of the most southerly parts of Mount View. The landscape is rural and was previously used for grazing, and it took a number of years to clear and restore. but the journey and hard work has paid off, with the winery winning its first award in 2003, and many more in the years following. In 2013, winemaker Daniel Binet joined the Montvalley team to head up their production.
