Overview

A lively and compex chardonnay wtih great poise, elegance and finesse.

Delightfully fresh and interesting, with everything that a modern Chardonnay promises - fresh fruits, complexity and subtle flint and stove-pipe aromas from wild fermentation. A consistent thread runs betwen the aromas and flavours and builds on a line of deliciously refreshing acidity that runs through the palate. Crisp and clean as a young wine, bottle age will yield honey-suckle aromas and bees wax texture that add to the already creamy and elegant wine.

Pale, bright green-straw; a particularly lively and intense wine, fruit-driven notwithstanding barrel fermentation; grapefruit is followed by white peach and brisk acidity on the finish. Rating 94 - Drink by 2016 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2012)
