Pewter Series Hunter Valley Chardonnay
Tempus Two Pewter Hunter Valley Chardonnay - Australia - 75cl
A favourite at Little Farms, this stunning chardonnay displays notes of flinty melon and white peach; with hints of toasty spice from the oak ageing. The palate is rich yet vibrant and elegant with flavours of citrus, melon and tropical fruits. A tight acidity is perfectly balanced by a creamy texture.
Sourced solely from the Hermitage Road vineyard of Hunter Ridge, the Chardonnay was fermented in 100% new French oak barrels with a diverse selection of cultivated yeast and the vineyard’s indigenous yeast. Lees stirred monthly for 5 months, the wine was then lightly fined and filtered before bottling.
This wine is drinking beautifully now but will easily see cellaring time of up to 7 years.
