A Chardonnay showing fresh and lively characters. This Chardonnay is made by expressing true varietal characters, still a full mouth coating Chardy showing white peach and stonefruit characters with a subtle French oak background and some nice lees stirring characters. A really good example of a favourite Aussie great !

A ridiculously low price for such a well-made wine, with white and yellow peach balanced by a gentle touch of citrus acidity and even more gentle toasty French oak. Small batch winemaking and attention to detail have shone through in 2011.

Winery Tasting Notes
Chardonnay is a magic grape variety that has lost its charm in recent times, there is still much in this variety to offer and this particular wine is a standout. The wine is fermented with some juice solids and less stirred for 6 months prior to bottling.
It has a rich palate with a subtle oak background but most importantly showing vibrant and fresh peach and melon characters.
Best accompanied with rich creamy pasta or veal scallopine.
