Slightly nutty aromas with fresh fruit and gentle sweetness, innocuous as it is pleasing. Simple flavours, a clip of phenolics lending some boundaries, tight acidity freshening the wine. It has some length, lightness, freshness, pleasing simple fruit character but there’s actually a touch of structure in place too. Geewhiz. A neat, appealing, good-natured, tightly wound, lightly-flavoured dry white wine. Kudos. 89 Points - Mike Bennie, winefront.com.au, December 2013
"Ridiculous that you can get a really good drink at a price like this. But you can, so if you’re looking for a neat, easy-drinking, well-rounded young chardonnay with minimal oak, then this is for you. Clean and pure, and good for the next 12 months."Best Value White - 89 Points Ray Jordan, West Australian, November 2013
"Light straw-green; a fragrant and fresh bouquet is smartly followed by a juicy stone fruit palate and a clean finish. It is surely impossible to find better value for a chardonnay that knocks the socks of pinot gris and does so at a derisory price. Just drink it now." 88 Points - James Halliday, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2015, July 2014
"This is a clean, well-made chardonnay with a youthful bright, light-yellow colour and slightly raw herbal and lanolin aromas, with no sign of oak. It’s light, lean and fairly short on the palate. A simple quaffing white wine, but great value at the price. Drink young."85 Points - Huon Hooke, Sydney Morning Herald, March 2014
Winery Tasting Notes
Very pale straw with a green tinge.
Fresh pear and stone fruit balanced with a hint of oak.
This wine displays peach and melon notes carried on a creamy texture, fresh acidity and some mineral grip on the finish.
Chicken or calamari salad or for something warmer a creamy mushroom risotto.
This wine is made for immediate enjoyment however, will improve over the next two to three years.
