Expert Reviews

Pale straw-green; an aristocratic chardonnay, if there can be such a thing; complex, yet fruit-driven, bright acidity; enviable length and purity. Rating 95 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2017

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale straw yellow with a green hue.

Aroma

Expressive aromas of white nectarine, green apple and fig, with cashew nut and spicy toasty oak.

Drinking well now, but will also cellar through to 2030.
