Dromana Estate Reserve Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Restrained, elegant yet exhibiting lovely nectarine, stone fruit and grapefruit, gently enhanced by barrel ferment and associated inputs.

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
Slightly brassy and forward, with round, juicy flavours of peach, melon and nectarine perhaps a shade too generously complemented by sweet, toasty and buttery vanilla oak. It's slightly hot and spirity, with undertones of honey, dried flowers and wheatmeal, finishing rather savoury, with lingering nuances of smoke and bacon.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Despite massive winemaking inputs, retains the core of the Dromana Estate style, with creamy/nutty/figgy flavours; finesse and elegance. Wild yeast, malolactic fermentation, 18 months barrel age.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
A more powerful expression than the 'standard chardonnay, with a closed, but creamy leesy bouquet of oatmeal, melon and green olives, lifted by vanilla oak. Sumptuous but very restrained and stylish, with concentrated peach/pineapple and green olive flavours elegantly presented before a rangy finish of soft, vibrant acids. Tightly integrated, with good refinement.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; as ever, a tight and elegant bouquet, clean and fresh; the palate is equally tight, with melon, cirrus and stone fruit, and a touch of m1f cashew.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; a typically subtle and elegant bouquet with creamy cashew, fig and melon aromas followed by very fine and elegant, light to medium-bodied palate, developing slowly; has some Chablis affinities.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; the bouquet is fine and aromatic, with melon, citrus and stone fruit supported by subtle oak, and no obvious malolactic-fermentation characters. The palate is equally fine, complexed by excellent oak handling producing subtly spicy overtones to the fruit. Very impressive.

James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
Medium to full yellow-green; the bouquet is complex and solid with citrus and nectarine fruit surrounded by hints of charry oak. It is a remarkably smooth wine in both flavour and texture, the fruit and oak harmoniously balanced; good acidity and length.
