Expert Reviews

Glowing yellow-green; marries the inherent generosity of white peach and nectarine with the high-tension wire of unsweetened grapefruit acidity, oak a dainty necklace to the fruit. Rating 94 - Drink by 2018 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale green straw with golden undertones

Aroma

Struck match, grapefruit and nectarine. Underlying hints of toast, and peaches & cream.

Palate

Elegant primary fruit flavours of ripe apple and fresh fig, combines with intense minerality to create a stylish, structured palate. Juicy lees complexity and toasty undertones are balanced with fresh natural acidity giving focus and length.

Cellaring

This Chardonnay is ready to enjoy now but the structure and natural cool climate acidity should enable confident cellaring for 5 to 8 years.

Serving Suggestions

Full flavoured fish and rich poultry dishes.
