2021 Single Barrel Chenin Blanc

2021 Somerset Vineyard Single Barrel Chenin Blanc

.

Planted on fine clay loam soil by the Howard family in 1969 and grafted to Chenin Blanc in 2007. The fruit was handpicked and whole bunch pressed before the juice was transferred directly to large format 3 year old French oak, where the wine underwent barrel fermentation. During the 7 month èlevage, bâtonnage was conducted to build a creamy texture to support the fruit and subtle oak spice. A beautiful mineral expression of Chenin Blanc. Easily one of the best wines I have ever made.

2021 Experimental Release Chenin Blanc

This particular label was illustrated by Mancunian artist, Stan Chow (@stan_chow), as a wedding gift from my wife Hannah. It plays homage to the photography project I started last year during lockdown, whereby each year I’ll take a self portrait post harvest to represent that respective vintage.

Chenin Blanc sourced from our Somerset Vineyard. This block was planted by the Howard family in 2007 on fine clay loam soil. The fruit was handpicked, de-stemmed, then fermented on skins for a week before being pressed off into Spanish clay amphorae and neutral French oak for secondary fermentation, before being blended.

2021 Vinden Headcase Semillon 10.5% alc./vol.

This block was planted by the Howard family in 1969 over fine clay loam soil, and the fruit was handpicked in early February. The juice was fermented on fine solids in stainless, a large concrete egg and some neutral oak was given with extended lees contact - building complexity and texture. The wine shows the character of the old gnarled vines; refreshing natural acidity, citrus fruit and delicate minerality. Drink any time over the next 10+ years.

2021 Vinden Wines Chardonnay 12.5% alc./vol.

A modern Hunter ‘Chardy’, balancing fruit and minerality, with texture and beautiful lees weight.  These blocks were planted by the Howard family in 1973, 1980 & 1987 over red volcanic clay and fine sandy clay loam soil.

During the seven-month élevage, bâtonnage was conducted to build complexity. 

2021 Vinden Wines Fountainhead Shiraz 13% alc./vol.

This wine is a vibrant modern Hunter shiraz, with fine tannin and dark fruits.

2021 Vinden Headcase Rose

Nothing screams summer, quite like a smashable rosé.

Multiple ferments in stainless, barrels and concrete egg’s were blended together to create a delicious, dry, textural rosé. This guy is made from Cabernet, Mourvèdre, Shiraz, Chardonnay & Semillon. This is my favourite rosé I've ever made, with a huge influence from Bandol - for those of you who know me, I drink that stuff by the gallon. Sourced from Inglewood, Somerset, Vinden & Tawarri Vineyards across the Hunter Valley.

2021 Somerset Vinden Wines Verdelho

This Verdelho was sourced from our Somerset Vineyard. The block was planted by the Howard family in 1987, over fine sandy clay loam soil. This is not your “traditional” Hunter Verdelho- the fruit was picked early to retain its beautiful natural acidity and freshness. A reinvigorated approach to this classic varietal, which is highly drinkable with anything spicy!
