There has been a significant lift in the quality of the Gold Turtle range. By any standards, this is a classy, modern WA chardonnay. It is tight, with intense white-peach and grapefruit flavours.

Light green-straw; crisp and bright, more significantly fruit-driven than the Howard Park Chardonnay, although there is a barrel ferment oak contribution.

Plenty of depth and complexity; grapefruit and nectarine on the bouquet; rich on the palate with a light coating of spice from the oak, the finish is even and generous.

A cream rich highly textured Margaret River chardonnay. Packed with a mix of grapefruit and stone fruit with touches of crme Broulee and spicy vanillin oak. There is power and persistence in an eminently drinkable appealing palate. Quality wine at this price.

MadFish's Gold Turtle wines have been consistently outstanding over the past few years. It bears no relation to the quality inside the bottle, but the label design and printing for this Gold Turtle Chardonnay is terrific too.It starts full and rich but finishes fine - in drinking terms it's a perfect chardonnay. Lots of flavour and yet lots of food-friendly finesse. It tastes of peach and cedar, mineral and perhaps a spot of both grapefruit and lemon. Its various components mesh together so well that all you really notice is that it's a fine drink. That, as it turns out, lingers beautifully on your tongue.
