Top Shelf direct from Thomas!

    • Thomas has crafted a seriously delicious drop for Angels to enjoy! Get ready to bask in an elegantly long palate with hints of white peach and spice.
    • The creamy and buttery texture gives an amazing mouth feel alongside beautifully integrated oak flavours, leading to a finish of spice and salted cashews. This wine comes from the upper Hunter, an area known for producing cracking Chardonnays.
    • Whole pressed to maximise texture before time in a blend of one and two year old French oak giving amazing structure and balance. Go on, enjoy the return on your Angel investment by supporting one of your local Hunter legends!

Ageing advice
Enjoy young or wait to develop in bottle up to 7 years.

Serving advice
Serve chilled but not Baltic cold, around 12-15C.

Local food match
Hard to beat a fresh local cheese platter to start with, followed by steak tartare for entrée. For the main Thomas recommends a pork crown roast with roast veggies including parsnip!
