Winemaker's Notes

Light field straw in color. On the nose, intense citrus and white nectarine fruit is overlayed with sutble vanillan oak. Layers of complexity evolve in the glass. This Chardonnay has concentrated fruit flavors of grapefruit are balanced by wonderful natural acidity. The fruit intensity is complimented by by precise oak and careful maturation. Crisp, mouth filling and incredible length provide balance which will be rewarded with time.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright straw-green; very good chardonnay was made in the Yarra Valley in '09, because either side of the bushfire auto da fe, the weather was perfect, and smoke taint doesn't affect chardonnay. The wine has an admirable restraint, white peach and grapefruit to the fore, sustained by natural acidity and supported by French oak."
