Cracka Rating
Appearance: Pale straw with green hues.

Nose: The bouquet of this elegant Chardonnay displays bright citrus and white fleshed stone-fruit characters with underlying hints of smoky oak, roasted hazelnuts and white flowers.

Palate: The palate is full bodied offering white nectarines, figs and zesty lemony flavours. There is a lovely complexity with a nutty, mealy texture derived from lees stirring; the taught mineral acidity combines with the bright fruit to focus the wine perfectly to a dry, persistent finish.

Fresh-cut ripe pear fruit smart modern style fresh flavours with gentle textures.

Rob Geddes MW
Seductively alluring chardonnay, with the vivacity of grapefruit blossom perfume that might be more expected in a one-year-old chardonnay than a three-year-old. Its fragrance does not fade for a single moment during its long, linear finish, defined by a wonderfully textural, mineral, chalky mouth feel. All the complexity of grapefruit pith, lemon zest and white peach over cashew nut oak.

Wine Taste Special Edition 63 - Easter spoils!
Charming bright and breezy chardonnay, with melon, peach, pear and very subtle oak use - an exercise in fresh, fine layers. The palate has impeccable build and shape, with peach, melon and citrus fruits weaving through savoury hazelnut and chalky lees influence. Terrific balance - very even.
The Good Wine Guide
Another fabulous chardonnay from these guys. Brioche, pear and white peach notes on the nose are just the beginning. The palate is carefully structured with layers of interest and complexity. There's a wild and funk edge but interestingly no malolactic fermentation has been used so that it is brilliantly precise and pristine. Super wine.

The West Australian Wine Guide
A shapely, Macon-like chardonnay with intensity and focus. A delicate, fresh aroma of melon, stonefruit and a hint of ruby grapefruit reveals suggestions of nuts and wheatmeal, while its taut and finely textured palate wraps a long and tangy fruitiness in a fresh acidity, finishing savoury and slightly briny.
91
The Australian Wine Annual
Light straw-green; an exceptionally fine wine that illustrates the state of play of today's (and doubtless tomorrow's) finest Australian chardonnays, with aromatic finesse and length of flavour of key importance; fruit, oak and acidity are all fused in an unbroken line from the start of the palate to the finish.
