Glandore Estate Wines was established in 2005 after the procurement of the original Brokenback chardonnay vineyard on Broke Rd. From day one the aim of Glandore Estate wines has been to produce wines of great character, regionality and style from the traditional varieties known in the Hunter Valley. This has been achievable through the strict selection of some of the Hunter Valley’s most distinguished old vine vineyards. Thinking out side of the square we have also started to forge ahead with new and exciting varieties to the Hunter Valley such as our superb Tempranillo.
Our winemaking style is all hands on, from hand picking right through to the hand operated basket press, quality without compromise and a winery that is designed specifically for small batch production of the very best parcels of fruit
The much adored and highly anticipated second release of Chloë is finally here!
Fine aromatics of lemon curd, Granny Smith apple skins and flinty sherbet are carried on fine bubbles as they lift from the surface of the wine.
The medium weight palate shows just hints of the 12 months of yeast autolysis with lemon tart and arrowroot biscuit characters showing through. There is a fantastic spine of acidity that runs the length of the palate paying homage to the true characteristics of a methode champenoise Blanc de Blancs. Snappy grapefruit leaves the palate crisp and fresh on the finish while the gossamer mousse of bubbles are a decadent massage on the palate. Salut.
This wine will age sensationally over the next few years. Drinking well into 2026 and pairs beautifully right now with Mussels Marinières - Mussels in white wine sauce.
Fiano is a fantastic wine variety for the Australian climate. Originating in the South of Italy, the grape is accustomed to the warm growing conditions we have here.
