Overview

The Pewter series is the definition of premium, embodying our style ethos; wines that taste as good as they look. Sourced from single regions in Australia’s premier wine regions, the Pewter series delivers a consistent and distinctive style.

The fruit for this wine is sourced solely from one block; "Poppy's Block" on the Tinklers Vineyard in the Hunter Valley. The Chardonnay was fermented with "full solids" in 100% new French oak barrels with a diverse selection of yeasts. Lees stirred monthly for 6 months, the wine was then lightly fined and filtered before bottling.
