They have just released their new vintage - the 2015 Cabernets and 2016 Chardonnay - and we are thrilled to offer a twin pack. Be quick, this is wine is in extremely high demand!
Cabernets 2015 - Always a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Shiraz, the Cabernets is amongst the highest tier of Australian fine wine. Open fermented to produce softer and more subtle flavours, with over a year spent maturing in oak and bottle. This is a dark red colour, with the typical cedar aromas of the Hunter, along with cherry, lavender and liquorice root. Only medium bodied, this is a beautifully elegant release. AWC
Chardonnay 2016 - Made from low yielding vines, which see 8 months of lees contact in new and old French oak. Creamy peach and citrus on the nose, with a fine and linear palate with fresh nectarine, almond, oatmeal and white blossoms. This vintage sees a stronger acid structure, which will allow for extended ageing. AWC
