2022 was a standout vintage for Chardonnay in the Huon Valley. Just the right combination of weather and yields to create wines of precision and balance. Our hallmark tends to be a slatey, briney, almost mineral-like palate weight which unites the three Chardonnays from 2022. 

The clone 76 is its typically aromatic self, fermented on skins to give texture and flavour but with that precise acid line to keep it fresh. The Huldufolk's whole-bunch pressing straight to oak gives it depth and palate weight while the Chardonnay is all about cool-climate elegance.
