James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Straw and yellow peach are overshadowed by a fairly generous lashing of toasty new oak; good concentration and depth of fruit, with a huge sweet spot on the mid-palate, toasty oak dominating the finish; the quality of the fruit is undeniable.

Lovely current drinking wine with some short term cellaring potential. Rich custard apple aromas with some lightly toasted marmalade complexity. The palate is still tight though with good texture and flavour intensity.Ê

There is, indeed, a touch of custard apple to the bouquet, as suggested by the back label; the palate is complex, with some creamy/nutty overtones to the nectarine and citrus fruit; very good length. Screwcap. 14.5% alc.

It's a creamy, nutty, bottle aged Chardonnay this one with the first hints of bottle age fleshing things out nicely. Complex, full bodied and rather tasty, if cast quite large. Smart stuff this.

Plenty of power and texture in this richly-textured, opulent chardonnay. Has a deep stone fruit and cream flavour with a touch of cashew and roasted almonds. Developed a slightly toasty complexity with an extra year in bottle. Mouth feel and flavour are what this one is about and it will cellar for several years with ease.

Glowing yellow-green; layers of complexity from barrel ferment and stone fruit/grapefruit flavours; has excellent length and balance, retaining elegance in the face of all the flavour.

Great colour; a complex array of flavours; nectarine and light creamy/nutty nuances; long, balanced finish.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Medium yellow-green; beautifully made; relatively light sweet nectarine fruit has not been submerged in oak; fresh finish and aftertaste.

Ray Jordan (2002 Vintage) says
Quite different in structure and flavour to the Donnybrook wine. Shows more tropical fruits and slightly more obvious charry oak on tasting. There is some real concentrated depth of fruit here and the palate texture is superb. Has a sweet fruit sense yet of course it's dry. Lovely wine, which will improve over the next couple of years.
