Clear juice fermented in French barriques (30% new), matured in those barriques for a further 10 months, no stirring or mlf. A vibrantly fresh chardonnay with grapefruit and white peach fruit driving the long palate and finish. Here length is the key. James Halliday, Rating 94, 27th July 2015
Winery Tasting Notes
The wine displays fresh green tinges on a pale straw colour.
The nose exhibits aromas of fresh cut pear and honey dew melon with some zesty citric notes. There are no overt woody or buttery aromas with the primary fruit characters expressed with clarity and definition.
The palate is fresh and lively with clean crisp acidity complementing the vibrant fruity flavours. The palate has very good extension and ends clean and bright. This is a restrained style of Australian Chardonnay and highlights how far we have come with this style of wine over the last decade.
