Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Superb green-yellow; an exceptionally intense chardonnay, with awesome drive to the white peach, grapefruit and cashew, the finish long and as fresh as a spring day. Let the cork gods be kind.

Taut vineyard structure meets multidimensional winemaking complexity. With no malolactic fermentation, the acidity is vibrant and structural, supporting a finish of monumental length.

Bright green-straw; marries layered complexity with finesse; a potentially great Chardonnay playing dice with the cork gods; the points are a compromise - buy the wine if you are happy to run the gauntlet.

A wild and complex chardonnay but at the same time one of consummate control, primary youthfulness and upright structure. Honed and poised, it needs a decade to reach its glorious maturity. With great palate texture and high-strung tension, it takes off on the finish like a rollercoaster appearing over the rise.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Glowing yellow-green; gloriously complex, yet still tight; melon, nectarine and grapefruit flavours have absorbed the oak; very long finish.

A fabulous aged Chardonnay in its prime, this top-of-the-line Bannockburn Chardonnay has developed beautifully with primary citrus fruits now building toasty, nutty, nougat complexity with a fine acidity still keeping it all in beautiful balance. Graceful now it will drink well for at least another 5 years.
Jeremy Oliver (2000 Vintage) says
Reveling in its customary palate fatness, toasty oak and savory qualities, this steadily maturing and genuinely complex chardonnay backs its slightly edgy and oxidative expression of floral nutty, melon like and citrusy fruit with appealingly smoky, nougat like undertones. Supported by smart, spicy new cooperage, it’s chewy and viscous, but finishes song and waxy, with lingering fruit and matchstick-like oak.

Jeremy Oliver (1999 Vintage) says
Complex, scented, smoky, meaty and cheesy aromas suggest extended lees contact, but bright melon, peach and lanolin-like fruit aromas easily protrude. There's great depth and concentration of juicy, tobacco-like fruit on the palate, wonderful softness and length, with a clean, lingering mineral finish. Very evolved and savoury; packed with personality.
