RATINGS & REVIEWS
- 92 points, 2018 Halliday Wine Companion - Bright. light straw-green; while the wine is complex, its cornerstone is its effortless elegance and semi-hidden power. The fruit spectrum is somewhat left field, white peach sharing the field with apple and pear before citrussy acidity joins the game. It's claims can't be ignored.
- 95 points, The Real Review, Toni Paterson - An intensely bright and vibrant chardonnay with energy and fruit restraint. Subtle nutty, biscuity complexity. The palate is long, refined and highly satisfying. It has room to grow so buy a few bottles to drink now, and some others for the cellar.
- 94 points, The Wine Front, Campbell Mattinson - Straw-yellow colour and it’s all good from there. Few varieties make quality look as effortless as chardonnay does when it’s on song. Exhibit A. Peach and pear, infusion of oatmeal barley sugar, sweet cedar-spiced oak and a slippery-soft aspect to the texture. It races along in general but it feels and tastes good/generous as it goes. Pitch perfect. Drink by 2017-2021
