Expert Reviews

This is a heavily worked, ambitious chardonnay, needing time to gel. In the meantime, nectarine and white peach aromas curl their way around vanillin oak pillars, melding with the lees work to finish pronouncedly tangy, pungent and toasty. Nutty at the core, with a kernel of vanilla pod creaminess. This will age well in a buxom, California-esque sort of way. Rating 93 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion August 2018

Winery Tasting Notes

A complex chardonnay typical of the Beechworth region, with creamy yeast-lees and nougat aromas. The acidity is fresh and lively, the structure fine, taut and lingering. An engaging, characterful chardonnay.
