The Chardonnay grapes were hand picked and static whole bunch pressed directly into barrel. All oak consisted of French barriques with approximately one third new, and the remainder one and two years old.
- TAS - Tasmania
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
Pale green straw with golden undertones
Struck match, grapefruit and nectarine. Underlying hints of toast, and peaches & cream.
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.
This Chardonnay is ready to enjoy now but the structure and natural cool climate acidity should enable confident cellaring for 5 to 8 years.
Full flavoured fish and rich poultry dishes.
