Expert Reviews

Rating 89 - Mike Bennie, Wine Front

Rebecca and Tim Duffy are well-loved Tasmanian vignerons, a dynamic duo of winemaker-viticulturist respectively. This wine sees wild fermentation for the estate chardonnay grapes, and settles into 20% new oak for its life pre-bottling. Always a solid offering from this outfit.

Easy to like this chardonnay. Shows some pulpy grapefruity tang amongst richer melon, ripe stone fruit and nougat oak characters. Lots of touchstones for those seeking ‘chardonnay 101’, with generosity yet freshness hand in hand. The oak does tend to lead the wine here, but the finish is refreshing despite the slippery cloying mid palate. A good drink, and was poured around to a bunch of friends after revealed from a tasting, with nobody leaving a glass with remnants.

Winery Tasting Notes

This is a refined and elegant cool climate Chardonnay. The nose displays aromas of citrus fruit, apricot kernel and white peach with spicy integrated oak, whilst the palate is fine and minerally.

Goes well with pork

The rich lusciousness of this Chardonnay matches really well with full flavoured pork, and there is enough acidity in the wine to cleans the palate after eating that delicious crackling!
