Sublime single vineyard Margaret River Chardonnay from the talented Stuart Pym. Barrel fermented and oozing textural appeal, it's a wine of complexity and real depth. Absolute top tier Chardonnay.
5 Red Star Winery
97 points James Halliday: 'The 'lucky' 7th vintage, whole-bunch pressed, fermented in French barriques (50% new), 100% mlf, matured for 18 months. The brilliant straw-green hue says there's something special here, for it's incredibly detailed, precise and balanced, the three spears of perfect varietal fruit, high quality oak and acidity all unsheathed, but not required to be thrown. Only 88 dozen made.'
On the palate:This is a complex expression of southern Margaret River Chardonnay. Dense, focussed and intense, perfectly aligning the fruit and oak. The powerful fruit flavours are introspective at the moment, but still hold the palate together. Some years will see them blossom. There is great texture and length, and a chalky acid to finish.
The palate has great power and focus, but is not fat or heavy. This is a serious Chardonnay of substance and moment. Outstanding, not to be missed!
