Vintage Conditions

Good rain throughout winter and also in December. The trend for cooler summers continued with no maximum temperatures over 40 degrees. Reasonable rains during vintage which came in storms rather than daily misty showers which can cause problems with the grapes.


This year’s Vat 47 comes entirely from our Short Flat Vineyard, which has ideal sandy loam soils. The oldest blocks were planted in the late 1960s.

Winemakers Notes

The fruit was handpicked before immediately being 100% basket pressed. The juice was cold settled for two days before fermentation was initiated in stainless steel tanks, then the fermenting juice was transferred to French Oak barriques (20% new). The wine stayed in these barriques until October before it was blended and coarse filtered into bottle.

Winery Tasting Notes

A fine example of modern Hunter Valley Chardonnay, medium bodied with slightly struck flint yeast character, a slight spiciness with grapefruit overtones. The palate is delicate, yet rich, round creamy fruit of great texture and mouthfeel persist, which ties in nicely with the soft French Oak balance and clean acid structure.
