Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
Stylish, fruit-driven and finely balanced, with a waxy, floral fragrance of peach, nectarine, cloves and ginger knit with dusty oak. It's smooth and creamy, with juicy, brightly lit flavours of stonefruit and grapefruit deftly integrated with restrained, older oak, culminating in a fresh, lively finish of softness and charm.

A complex example of Great Southern chardonnay. The nose of nectarine and citrus with some distinctive light roasted almond characters provide a compelling opening. The palate is seamlessly structured with a long finish sustained by a minerally acid. This is a classy chardie from a rapidly improving producer.

Texture and elegance with subtle complexity balances cool fruit and fine cedar and tobacco oak. Genuine concentration but not heavy custard apple and pear fruit with the ability to age. A really good balance with plenty of fruit intensity fine acid and a delicate silky creamy mouth feel with maturity. Age-worthy wine.

Boy, there's plenty going on in here. The melon and grapefruit smells catch you straight away and that fair whack of nectarine. The lees component strikes home too. The palate is rich and lush with a nice mouth-filling texture. A good wine and great value
