Description

Light, bright yellow hue. Smoky oak and reductive notes add a patina to the bouquet which is more complex as a result. Grapefruit rocketing through on the palate, which is taut and refined, focused and long. Great precision here. Grapefruit comes up more and more on the nose (Gingin clone?), while the palate is impressively intense, refined, subtly concentrated and extremely long-lasting. A great chardonnay with a very bright future ahead of it. 97 points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Shows the influence of the cool vintage. Refined and elegantly crafted chardie. Has more new oak than the standard chardie, but the power and intensity of the fruit handles it easily to maintain balance without a hint of excessiveness. Only natural yeasts are used and it gets nine months in oak with some battonage. Has a slightly charry character that augments the grapefruit and pear characters with a distinct savoury edge on the palate. Long and defined palate. One of the finest yet under this label. 98 points, Ray Jordan - West Australian

Taut, refined, lengthy white of fine boned nature, inward concentration, citrus and green apple, lots of flint too. Serious feeling wine. Complex and detailed, of a modern Australian chardonnay ilk, with flavour and energy to boot. Great wine here. 94 points, Mike Bennie, Wine Front
