WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Complexity of sweet/smoky/fruity aromas, and a flinty restraint to the palate.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
A very well made wine, playing to the strengths of Yarra chardonnay, the oak subde, the palate elegant, precisely focused, and very long.

WINESTATE (2007 Vintage) says
Lots of interesting creamy, yeasty aromas and some intensely powerful flavours. Nice sweetness on the mid-palate, with well-handled, classy, spicy, toasty oak.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Quite intense and powerful; melon grapefruit, minimal oak; 14.5° alcohol heats the finish somewhat.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light to medium-bodied, clean and elegant; melon and nectarine backed by subtle oak and malolactic influences; developing well.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; the clean bouquet offers melon, fig and a touch of cashew, the palate with similar cashew and melon flavours; seems to show a little of the heat of 2000, although only 13°.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Medium to full yellow-green; the bouquet is complex and powerful with barrel- ferment characters over strong fruit. The palate is even more powerful, highly flavoured, and with a faintly hot finish, but has lots of character.

James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
Light to medium green-yellow; delicate melon fruit is offset by rather raw sawdusty/planky oak on the bouquet; the palate has a similar mix of light melon and white peach fruit and indifferent oak.
