Description

"Pale lemon to straw colour but has brightness and intensity to the rim. The nose leaps with fresh lemon zest, just-warmed pine nuts and a touch of seaspray. The palate has a lift and vibrancy that belies the true power of the fruit this wine possesses. Lemon notes intermingle with a hint of struck flint and flame-caressed sourdough crust. But the beauty of this wine is its length and persistence. It unfurls deep and long into the palate and lingers for an eternity." 97 points, The Real Review

"Looks like 2019 is a very good vintage for Margaret River Chardonnay, though it seems very much a ‘line and length’ vintage over ‘Flavour Town’. Lime, green apple, a little struck match, cinnamon and almond brioche. It’s lean, very crunchy and tight, all the green apple and citrus zing, flinty river pebble dryness, and finishes very very long with razor sharp lemony focus. It’s somewhat ascetic in nature as at now, but does feel like a wine of potential." 95+ points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

"This top-tier chardonnay has very attractive restraint, married with underlying complexity. Lemon and wet-stone aromas, as well as white-peach and almond notes, leading to a palate that has a very elegant yet powerful core of lemons, grapefruit and white peaches. Toasted-hazelnut finish. It’s all here." 95 points, James Suckling
