Light straw-green; the complex bouquet has interlocking stone fruit and cashew aromas that flow into the long and polished palate, reflecting precisely judged ripeness. I am smitten with the label, part of a continuing design pattern.To 2017Australian Wine Companion 2013
Light straw-green; relatively early picking has given the wine zest and drive to its mix of citrus/grapefruit and stone fruit/melon flavours, any oak incidental. The labels in this range are brilliant.Australian Wine Companion 2012 2011
Fruit for The Architect comes from our younger vines planted in 1995. This Chardonnay displays an excellent light-medium colour with a hint of green and an aroma that is bright with hints of honey. The Architect is not overtly fruity and its time on lees and in old barrels for around 6 months has given a subtle elegant fruit character with fine texture.
