Indigo Vineyard is a close neighbour, younger in age and slightly different in terms of aspect and clime, it yields a quality of Chardonnay which lends itself to a more modern style of winemaking. A measure of old world practices are nevertheless employed, wild ferments in new French oak and a judicious term of age, the objective is to encourage fruit to unlock its potential, while retaining natural eloquence and sense of place.

It was not until a decade of red wine vintages had passed before the Brokenwood team turned their hands to varietal whites. Now representing a major part of Brokenwood's production every year, good sites further afield have been husbanded for the construct of the bigger boned, more solidly structured styles of white wine not easily realized from within Hunter Valley. Different soils and aspect, clones and age of vines at Indigo, paint a picture of a region which demands to express itself. Parcels of Indigo Vineyard Chardonnay are whole bunch pressed into a high proportion of new French oak barrels from choice cooperages, for a wild, indigenous yeast vinification and term of maturation.
Vibrant yellow green hues. Pear and citrus notes over a background of mealy oak, wild ferment edges of struck flint. Tannin and French oak sweetness on the finely textured palate, bright citrus flavours and luscious tropical acidity, a little fuller with flavour towards the back and middle, finishing clean and lingering on a length of grapefruit nougat notes.
