If you love the taste of Chardonnay as much as we do, you’ll recognise that Taylors of the Clare Valley make a stunning range of estate wines using top quality Clare Valley fruit. Forget also what you know about the Chardonnay of old as this is leaner and less oaky than the wood chip wines of yesteryear. It’s lifted with white peach and nectarine as well as some subtle cashew oak character before stone-fruit and citrus collide on a creamy palate that’s long and luxurious.
Vibrant green hue; pure nectarine and spice are evident on the bouquet; the palate is fine and fresh, with pure fruit and complex savoury notes of cashew and spice seamlessly in play.To 2015Australian Wine Companion 2013

Opens nicely with melon and peach fruit largely untrammelled by oak, but - as ever in the Clare Valley - falters on the finish.Australian Wine Companion 2009 2008

Slightly cooked and under-ripe, with light, resiny and floral aromas of cumquats, melon and sweet butter/vanilla oak and nutty undertones. Round and oily, its palate of green olives and cashews, citrus and herbal flavours finishes short and cloying.Australian Wine Annual 2005 2004
Nose: Delightful aromas of white peach, nectarines, tropical fruit and citrus zest with a hint of cashew.
Palate: Fresh flavours of stone fruit combine with cashews and an underlying toastiness from the barrel fermentation to deliver a mouth-filling and enjoyable wine. The wine has a clean, elegant palate, a zesty acid backbone and long, persistent finish.
Food: Chicken with Mediterranean Herbs
Cellaring: This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2020.
