70% wild yeast barrel-fermented with 20% new oak; still pale straw-green, the wine has exceptional drive and energy to its very long palate, white peach and nectarine to the fore, but with some creamy, almost spicy, notes adding complexity. Brilliant winemaking.2020Australian Wine Companion 2012
Quite mealy and savoury to start out, this has wheat biscuits, grains and oats all rolled through gently ripe melon fruit aromas, florals; creamy and spicy. The palate s bright and fruit-focused, with crunchy peach and citrus flavours moving through to ripe yellow peach. A young, delicious wine.NowGood Wine Guide

Light-bodied; quite elegant citrus and nectarine, but not quite enough fruit weight for higher points.Australian Wine Companion 2010 2009
2015 was a great vintage in Tasmania and resulted in Chardonnay fruit with great natural acidity and fruit intensity.
The fruit for this wine was whole bunch pressed to tank and allowed to settle without enzyme for 24 hours and then racked to barrel (30% new French oak). 60% of the wine was naturally fermented, and 40% underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was matured in oak for 9 months prior to bottling.
This is a refined and elegant cool climate Chardonnay. The nose displays aromas of citrus fruit, apricot kernel and white peach with spicy integrated oak, whilst the palate is fine and minerally.
The rich lusciousness of this Chardonnay matches really well with full flavoured pork, and there is enough acidity in the wine to cleanse the palate after eating that delicious crackling!
