The color of the wine is pale straw with brilliant green hues. Loads of citrus and green melon characters dominate the fresh bouquet and a clean, crisp, green apple character complement the soft, well-rounded palate. Ideal to drink now with any seafood and white meat dishes and will improve with short term cellaring.
"A Chablis look-alike, the attractive, crisp, fresh 2003 Chardonnay was aged in 30% new oak, but it is primarily fruit-driven, with some background minerality. With medium to full body, good definition, and lovely elegance, it should drink well for 1-2 years"- The Wine Advocate, Robert Parker
About the Label:
"On the Road to Gundagai" is a fascinating piece of Australian bush lore that personifies the Aussie battler, and the pioneering spirit. Transporting badly needed supplies, drovers were required to cross several treacherous rivers, including Five Mile Creek near Gundagai. As legend goes, Bullocky Bill the stoic but somewhat unlucky drover became bogged at Five Mile Creek. The yoke of his bullock team broke and on top of that, the dog shat on his tuckerbox (food and supplies case). Later interpretations of the legend had the drover's faithful mutt guarding the tuckerbox, while his master went for help.
