Expert Reviews

Seamless and refined. This is a far more elegant display than is the norm for this label. It's bright and complex with plenty of grapefruit, citrus, pear and apple flavour, a splash of tinned tropical fruits blooming on the finish. Oak and fruit sit hand-in-glove and the lengthy, refreshing trail of fruit flavour extending out through the finish is impressive. Rating 95 - Drink by 2021, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2015).

It has the flavour of Margaret River, but with a well tuned sophistication. Grapefruit, pear, spice and struck match, with just a whisper of pineapple laced tropical fruit. Clean, cool and composed, tinned grapefruit flavours, bright acidity and lovely flinty texture. The finish is long, and it goes down a treat. Rating 94 - Drink by 2020+, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au (SEP/2015).

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Brilliant condition. Pale to mid straw with a youthful green rim.

Aroma

Citrus and lifted stone fruit aromas drive the nose of the wine with delicate savoury aromas of dried herbs, malt, shortbread, and oyster shell from wild fermentation and maturation on yeast lees in large format French oak barrels.

Palate

A benchmark Chardonnay from Margaret River. Tight citrus / lime flavours with honeydew melon and white peach driving through the palate to a very long flavoursome finish. Delicate savoury characters of dried herbs, fresh toast and malt from wild barrel fermentation on solids adds intriguing flavour and textural complexity.

Cellaring Potential

Will cellar beyond 2025.
