Winemaker's Notes

A lovely array of lemon fruit flavours, quince and melon in harmony with the winemaking derived characters that have imparted a creamy, vanilla custard note with a dash almond meal. The bouquet evolves with time in the glass providing further interest. A supple, lithe palate with a fine core of acid running the length of the palate with loads of mouth filling winemaking flavours, adding extra dimension to the vibrant fruit notes. A harmonious wine with a clean finish and delicious lingering flavours.

Critical Acclaim

"It gives a complex, meaty / savory nose with notes of oatmeal, toast, cashew, ripe apricots and pineapple. The medium bodied palate offers great texture at a moderate level of alcohol (around 13.5%) and very crisp acidity cuts through the concentrated flavors lingering well into the long, layered finish. Approachable now, this Chardonnay has the capacity to develop and drink to 2016+."
91 Points

"Bright and juicy, a lively mouthful of grapefruit, apple and spice aromas and flavors that lilt through the finish."
90 Points

"Light, bright yellow. Pungent herbs complement fresh quince and pear on the nose. Juicy orchard fruit flavors are braced by zesty minerality, turning riper and fleshier on the close. I really like this wine's uncompromising, sharply focused personality."
90 Points

"Loaded with sweet nectarine fruit and a slight pine element; toasty and rich with a strong mineral component coming to the fore."
