The owners of the Spring Mountain Vineyards initiated the Wine Excellence Scholarship to support Hunter Valley winemakers by offering an educational tour of European wine growing regions to the winemaker who created the most awarded wines from vineyard grapes. Each year the competing winemakers are allotted the same sized parcel of grapes from this exceptional vineyard, which has been producing outstanding quality grapes since the mid 1980’s.The Hunter Valley was the birthplace of Australian Chardonnay in the 1970’s. Since then, Hunter Chardonnay has become an iconic Australian wine style which is widely admired by discerning white wine drinkers.

Winery Tasting Notes
This wine has a beautiful lipid clear colour.
Delicate aromas on the bouquet.
On the palate the wine is crisp, lively and steely. This wine has been made in the leaner spectrum of Hunter Valley Chardonnays, so needs time to show its true potential.
Being a leaner style of Chardonnay, it is most suitable as an accompaniment to heartier style of food dishes.
