Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Bright, light straw-green; an attractive example of Yarra Valley Chardonnay, with a long, elegant palate picking up nectarine, white peach and grapefruit flavours, and a subliminal touch of cashew from the subtle oak influence.

Pale quartz-green; a totally delicious, fresh chardonnay that has light citrus aromas and flavours, building on the finish, although oak is merely a whisper. Despite the low alcohol, is not green or herbal.

Nick Stock (2009 Vintage) says
A very handy little piece of value, and great drinking right now to boot. This has been picked really early and shows really elegant yet concentrated fruit aromas in the lemon and yellow grapefruit citrus spectrum, some minerally accents and a wealth of tangy acid crunch on the palate, ahead of gently nutty, savoury notes through the finish.

Tyson Stelzer (2008 Vintage) says
In one of my tastings for this edition I lined up eighty chardonnays and only a single bottle made the cut. This wine stepped to the front by virtue of its finely textured structure and bubbling river pebble minerality that flows long and wide through the finish. Nice to get a bit of sophistication under $20!

WINESTATE (2008 Vintage) says
Lighter style thats floral and fragrant on the nose and lean and simple in the mouth. Good varietal intensity.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Lively and fresh nectarine and melon fruit, with the length of palate typical of good Yarra wine, the oak influence perceptible but minimal.

WINESTATE (2007 Vintage) says
Lively aromas of straw, citrus and stewed apples and a developing, tart, citrusy palate with an oaky finish.
