Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Pale, bright green-quartz; barrel fermentation in French oak and lees stirring has built up a richly textured, creamy mid-palate, followed by a cleansing fruit and acid finish. Great value.

WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Closed nose with mineral notes and touches of herbs and melons. Nicely focused, cool fruit flavours. A wine with class and elegance.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; you get the whole kit and caboodle with this wine, which marries the entire range of chardonnay aromas and flavours with barrel fermentation in French oak: grapefruit, white and yellow peach, fig, lychee and citrus/mineral acidity to close.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Bright, light straw-green; a fresh, fruit-driven bouquet, white peach and grapefruit competing for centre stage, a subtle touch of French oak joining in on the palate, but still yielding primacy to the fruit on the long finish.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Fine and elegant, still very youthful; crisp white peach, nectarine and grapefruit flavours supported by good acidity and seamless oak. Still developing.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
A nice touch of smoky, spicy barrel ferment oak on the bouquet leads into a complex, fruit-driven palate; nectarine, grapefruit and melon; long finish.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Complex barrel-ferment aromas come through strongly before elegant, fine grapefruit and stone fruit drive the palate.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
A complex array of citrus, nectarine and melon fruit with a posy of spicy oak on the bouquet announces a very attractive, elegant and lingering palate sustained by balanced but positive French oak.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
A wine which has come on impressively since first tasted in February 1998, with quite lovely melon, citrus and pear fruit aromas, soft and clean; the palate is as elegant as the bouquet promises, with predominantly citrus and stone fruit flavours, and some melon. Subtle spicy oak throughout.
