|When to drink|
This Chardonnay is consistently one of Australia’s finest, coming from a very special vineyard planted at 500ms altitude in the Adelaide Hills.
Pale lemon straw colour. Restrained on the nose, with white flowers and a touch of struck match. A long, fine, and delicate palate but with underlying intensity of fruit, with chamomile, lemon pith and slightly under-ripe nectarine notes. Understated, with purity and finesse, but there is also texture and drive that hint at a great potential to age.
“Pale colour. Intense white peach, white apricot marzipan tonic water aromas with honey vanilla notes. Beautifully balanced wine with fresh stonefruit, lemon curd flavours, fine lacy textures, superb creamy complexity and underlying marzipan vanillin notes. Finishes long and minerally. A top-notch Adelaide Hills
Chardonnay with amazing flow, clarity and persistency. Drinking beautifully now. Why wait?” 98/100pts Andrew Caillard MW
“Transparent and tensile with an additional nuance of flavour, vibrato and mineral cohesion etched into the firmament of complexity each year. White peach, toasted hazelnut, jasmine and nougatine teem long. The oak, nestled beautifully, serves as a framing backdrop rather than the centrepiece. A wine of precision, intense flavours and immense class.” 96/100pts James Halliday’s Wine Companion
