No disguising the concentration of this dry-grown Gippsland Chardonnay - it's a powerful white, the extra bottle age only enhancing the quiet density here.

All of John Ellis' wines are concentrated, but this wonderfully full, toasty and even slightly old school white is an easy winner.

Expert Reviews

93 Points - Campbell Mattinson - Halliday's Wine CompanionSmoky, bacony oak adds a clear edge to strong, characterful fruit. If an elegant wine can also be a force to be reckoned with, then this is it.

How's it taste?

Incredibly concentrated Gippsland Chardonnay that shows the benefit of dry grown vineyards and low yields. A power house white wine

How was it made?

The growing season was rather cool with some rain. Harvest was at the end of March, and the wine is crisp and fresh with layers of complexity showing notes of white peach and nectarine as a result. One is reminded once again why Chardonnay from a site with moderate climate can express such exquisite subtleties of flavour and texture.

A really great wine deal must must be accompanied by great value. There is nothing better than getting an incredible bottle of wine for a fraction of what similar quality wines sell for. My recommendations gives you the very best "Value for money" wines at different price points.
