Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
A flinty edge to this very complex and compelling chardonnay that shows a little sulphidic edge, citrus and a neat, buttery layer too. Smooth and even, the oak is nicely played here, good weight and drive, citrus, melon and stone fruit flavours sit fresh and deep. Some time to run yet.

A quiet elegance at play here. Has the matchsticky funk in the bouquet, overlaid on stone fruits and honeysuckle. Smooth, light and bright across the palate; not quite racy, but it's fine and flighty. Power of fruit builds as the wine opens, a touch of creaminess comes too. A good expression.

With a more composed and restrained nose than the McCutcheon chardonnay from the same stable, this has plenty of lemon curd and spiced-peach brulee custard, gentle nutty oak and attractive freshness with good concentration. The palate has a savoury thread of biscuits, grilled nuts and peach fruit, and leaves a concentrated, composed impression. Great wine.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Similar colour to the standard wine; the bouquet is fresh and focused, but the palate takes the wine to another level, with its energy and penetrating shaft of minerally acidity carrying the stone fruit and grapefruit along in its wake, and long, lingering finish.

Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says
This has a sharper edge than the standard 10X chardonnay, more complexity too, with plenty of melon and peach fruit. The palate delivers impressive intensity of melon and peach flavour, some marzipan and almond, oak is subdued and serves long through the finish.

Finer and purer than McCutcheon Vineyard, the delicate stone fruit and apple aromas and flavours set against gentle barrel ferment inputs; has immaculate balance and length

Highly focused, but lighter than McCutcheon notwithstanding higher alcohol, with slightly more tangy fruit; 100% mlf here too, but with fewer question marks.

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
Plenty of creamy richness and well-placed artefact here; hazelnut brittle and vanillin, the wine is cloaked with complexity. The palate starts out smooth, gently creamy with intense stone fruit flavour, ripe and concentrated with chablis-like chalky intensity; long, fine and precise.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Light straw-green; in very similar style; fine, elegant and long nectarine and grapefruit; a very pure, restrained style.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium to full yellow; the bouquet is rich and smooth, with hints of nut, smoke and fig; a big, solidly ripe palate with nutty melon flavours tightened up by acidity on the finish.
