Lion's Circle is a new label from Great Southern's Plantagenet that features all the Plantagenet classic hits, just like this Chardonnay. Chunky white peach fruit, a layer of nutty oak but with a tight finish. It straddles both old and new school wine here, with real freshness and weight.

Expert Reviews

92 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitBeautifully poised and elegantly fragrant, the wine shows white flesh nectarine, fig, lemon peel and vanilla aromas on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that is attractively fruited and seductively smooth. It is wonderfully harmonious and flowing with subtle complexity, making it highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2021.

How's it taste?

Notes of ripe tropical fruit combined with subtle nutty undertones. A lees derived savoury palate with peaches, lemon, nougat and good acidity helps give length with a nutty biscotti and citrus finish. Quality cool climate Chardonnay with moderate use of oak produce a well-balanced, flavoursome wine.

How was it made?

The 2017 growing season saw a dry winter and mild spring was followed by a warm growing season with welcome rainfall in December and January leading to full, healthy canopies enabling excellent yields and great flavour development.
