Winemaker's Notes:

The finished wine is a complex style displaying rich ripe Chardonnay fruit with some fruit characters reminiscent of peach and lychee. There is an underlying richness provided by the time spent on lees combined with subtle complexity of the Malo ferment component. The finish is soft with a hint of fruit sweetness balanced with an approachable acid level to leave a long , savory, flavorsome finish.
My Notes:

About Trevor Jones:

Trevor Jones began his winemaking career in 1977 at Bernkastel Wines, with Rob O'Callaghan of Rockford Winery Basket Press Shiraz fame, and worked through two vintages, before accepting a position as assistant winemaker at Karrawirra Wines in 1979. In 1982, Trevor was appointed winemaker and remained in that position until 1986. During Trevor's time at Karrawirra, he also made wines for Kellermeister Wines and eventually became full time winemaker there. Additionally, Trevor has worked as a consultant winemaker for Anglesey Wines, St. Hallett Wines and Glenara Wines.

Trevor Jones received the distinction of being awarded two perfect 100 point scores (never before awarded) for the Old Barossa Tokay and the Barossa Liqueur Shiraz Tawny from Robert Parker Jr. of The Wine Advocate in February 2000.
