Creamy nougat and toasted almonds with an appealing citrus and white peach lift. The palate is fine and creamy with flavours of stone fruit and figs. Elegantly structured, with nuances of toasty oak and a fresh citrus acidity to finish.
Australian Wine CompanionVibrant depth and weight, and a little mineral complexity; the oak only starts to assert itself on the finish as the fine citrus fruit dissipates. Screwcap.
The Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Chardonnay Wild Ferment spent seven months in oak with occasional lees stirring. It is medium straw-colored with toasty, tropical aromas. Medium-bodied, the wine has a creamy texture, ripe fruit flavors, good balance, and a lengthy finish. Drink this tasty effort over the next 1-2 years.
International Wine CellarPale yellow. Impressively complex nose displays leesy apple, pear, peach and melon aromas complicated by subtle toasted grain and truffle qualities. This smells like a white Burgundy, and a fancy one at that. Orchard fruit flavors are deep in flavor but not overly rich, and there's a cool mineral aspect to the back end to go with firm citrus bite and a lingering anise quality. An outstanding bargain, with impressive complexity for the price.
