This reserve Chardonnay comes from a premium parcel of exceptional quality fruit that was harvested in the night to preserve the essential fruit flavours and delicate natural acidity that defines great wine.
This wine is a result of meticulous attention to detail in the vineyard and the winery. Careful fruit selection and oak handling have resulted in a wine that expresses intense varietal characters and offers good cellaring potential.

Medium straw-green; an elegant wine with mid-range fruit flavours of melon, nectarine and fig, oak playing second fiddle; has the balance to continue its development over the next few years. Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2013)
Winery Tasting Notes
Golden straw in colour.
Lifted aromas of grapefruit and lime with a hint of nectarine.
A mix of creamy fruit, minerals and cereal. All held with a tight focused control. The palate shows excellent intensity that persists.
Best paired with chicken, Chinese cuisine, pasta, vegetarian dishes and seafood.
This wine will cellar well for 4-5 years.
