Canobolas-Smith Wine Reviews and Accolades

Very restrained and youthful with terrific underlying complexity; a more reserved vintage for this maker. While great now, it promises more with time. Continues to unfold in the glass. - 95 Points and 5 Stars, Gourmet Traveller Wine, 2008

Canobolas-Smith Shine Reserve Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2005 Vintage) says
It's five years old but it looks nothing of the sort. With its youthful, zesty orange flesh fruit, notes of melon, bubblegum and cashew nut oak, it's a classic Orange style with plenty of years ahead of it.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Ripe peach and plenty of toasty oak; oak also dominates the palate, but there is richness and fruit definition to enjoy.

Peter Forrestal (2005 Vintage) says
"Complex, grapefruit, melon and mineral notes. Power with finesse. A good oak backbone. Good length and in great condition. I liked the way sweet fruit flavours blended with nutty oak and hints of toast. It's one of the fuller bodied wines but still fresh and poised."

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Great colour; a rich but not heavy wine, with length, intensity and balance. Another of many gold medals to its credit (at the Orange Wine Show '06).
