Cape Bernier Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Deep gold, green hue; the bouquet is full of meyer lemon, biscuit dough and grilled hazelnuts; the palate reveals taut acidity and a saline minerality that sits neatly alongside the moderately long grilled nut conclusion.

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
A flinty edge with gentle reduction, sweet fragrant baking spices and almonds ahead of yeasty notes and handy ripe apple and pear fruits, good complexity here. The palate has some riper flavours, stone fruits into tropical nuances, citrus threaded through, complex fruit base, good balance and drive.

Developed colour; full, fleshy chardonnay; good balance and length, but ready now.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
The structure, and in particular the acidity, of Tasmanian white wines stands out like a beacon in mainland tastings; this is a wonderfully crisp, juicy and lively wine, with white peach and citrus flavours, oak in the background.

Tyson Stelzer (2008 Vintage) says
With lemon and preserved lime fruit flavours, the fruit spectrum of this refreshing southern Tasmanian style looks as much like Riesling as it does Chardonnay. It's a complex wine with lively acidity and fig and mixed spice nuances.
James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Bright deep gold; pear, lemon and a gentle touch of oak on the bouquet; a fine acid profile frames the elegant fruit, and draws out the palate to a long and even finish. Dijon clones.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Big winemaking inputs; lots of wild ferment and lees contact; fractionally sweaty characters.
