- VIC - Mornington Peninsula
Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed and wild-fermented in new and used French barriques. Has more singular potency and precision than many Mornington Peninsula chardonnays; it has great length and drive, grapefruit and white peach to the fore. This is a serious chardonnay with a great future. Rating 96 - Drink by 2028, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2015).
