Expert Reviews

90 Points

Bright and lively pear fruit aroma with a gentle touch of spicy oak; clean and fresh with a fine hint of citrus lingering on the finish. James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 Jun-09

90 Points & 4 Stars "Admirable for its directness and simplicity, a cleansing, refreshing chardony with little human intervention. Fine and precise lemon and nectarine aromas, some richer tropical fruit flavours—really bright and fresh, cool and elegant." Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009, Nick Stock (Australia), 2009

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Lemon sorbet, dried mangos, fresh figs and white peaches. Juicy fruit, cashews and meringue.

Palate

Steely mineral notes, and tight on the palate with flavours of dried pineapple. Soft tannins and textually enjoyable with a good length. Creamy oak finish.

Food Matching

Steamed Barramundi or fresh Kingfish. Washed rind cheese.
