James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Partial mlf makes a major impact, providing a creamy texture, albeit with diminished fruit intensity; the oak is balanced.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
Slightly brassy and assertive, this luscious, round and generous chardonnay reveals a smoky, meaty presence of grapefruit and melon, with suggestions of lemon and tinned pineapple. It's moderately long and concentrated, with confectionery fruit and assertive vanilla oak finishing slightly metallic and green-edged. It should settle down nicely for the short term.

Melon, stone fruit and fig, plus evident oak, run through to a long finish.

Jeremy Oliver (2005 Vintage) says
Lively and slightly angular, this intense young wine has a citrus, melon and banana-like flavour backed by slightly raw vanilla oak. It's juicy and generous, with creamy, buttery undertones and a tangy, lemony and mineral finish. There's a little funkiness, but it's really rather uncomplicated, clean and refreshing.

Elegant, light-bodied; melon and stone fruit with integrated oak/lees/malolactic inputs; good finish, developing slowly

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
Rather brassy, nutty and meaty aromas of peaches and sweet corn precede a herbal, forward palate of cashews and butterscotch. Very deficient in fruit.

Considerable intensity; fruit-driven, with good acidity and a clean, lingering finish.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
A lightly toasty, honeyed and rather syrupy chardonnay with a peachy, creamy bouquet supported by sweet vanilla oak and undertones of oatmeal. Up-front and juicy, it offers a reasonable length of syrupy, tropical and peachy fruit backed by sweet oak. It finishes with a hint of greenness.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the bouquet has a range of melon, nectarine and fig fruit supported by the usual subtle oak; the light to medium-bodied palate presents all the flavours promised by the bouquet in a soft, easy flow.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Light to medium yellow-green; a refreshing bouquet is light but clean, with nicely balanced stone fruit and subtle oak; the vibrant palate picks up pace and intensity with stone fruit and melon running through to a long finish.
