Expert Reviews

Whole bunch-pressed to new and used French barriques, wild-fermented for 14 days, on lees for 12 months, stirred monthly. A nicely tailored suite for chardonnay, all the sharp edges honed off to make it eminently drinkable now. It is possible a little mean streak should have been induced or retained. Rating 91 - James Halliday, Australia Wine Companion 2014

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

An intense and complex nose displaying stone fruit, melon and fig fruits with cashew nuts and creamy barrel ferment characters balanced by a spicy oak background.

Palate

Tight and juicy yet refined with nectarine, melon and citrus fruits. The wine has a mineral back bone with mealy notes, spice, nutty and creamy oak flavours with a long and lingering back palate. This is a wine with great structure and complexity and will reward cellaring over the next 4 to 6 years.
