Dalwood Estate Chardonnay grows in sandy loam soil on the south bank of the Hunter River. The 2017 vintage was warm and dry. The fruit was hand picked in early February and is exotic with ripe flavours of peach and melon, and a creamy palate with well integrated oak.
Established on the beautiful Hunter River in 1828, Dalwood Estate is regarded as the birthplace of Hunter Valley wine.
As the longest running commercial vineyard in Australia Dalwood Estate purchased cuttings from the first Australian vine collections of Macarthur, Busby, Shepherd and Blaxland. Early colonial Dalwood wines from those vines won prizes at international exhibitions. It’s a proud heritage.
Today Dalwood Estate continues to raise the benchmark in Australian winemaking, placing passion, expertise and technique at the heart of all we do. We are proud to bring you an outstanding selection of Hunter Valley wines born from a legacy close to two centuries in the making.
