Winemaker's Notes

Pale gold with bright green tinges. Aromas of lemons, white peach and hazelnut are supported by hints of wheatmeal and French oak. A powerful expression of ripe Chardonnay – citrus and figs – balanced with creamy midpalate complexity, and typically fine acid structure.

Critical Acclaim

"Has lots of flavor, but also shows real subtlety and style, offering spicy pear, wax and cashew notes that mingle effectively on the crisply balanced finish. Drink now through 2013."

This is definitely a richer, creamier style of Chardonnay than I expected. From a cooler climate, I was thinking it would be much more mineral-driven. And it does have that aspect, but the biscuit and hazelnut aromas and creamy textures dominate, though I was pleased by the acidity that backed it up. Not too heavy by any means, I thought it balanced rich flavors and textures with some good bright fruit and acidity. A good Chardonnay for some creamy sauces!

This is actually a very nice wine, just a little too dense and complex for my taste in chardonnay styles. Since I got this in the wine club, and it's supposed to be representative of the countries style, I'm wondering if in some parts of Australia they make a lighter, crisper chardonnay style as well?
