This is Yarra Valley chardonnay in superb form. It’s inherently complex and indeedpowerful but importantly it’s also deliciousness writ large. Grapefruit, stone fruit,citrus pulp and cedar combine here in the most harmonious of ways. There areaspects of both flint and lactose but they are tucked well within the overall whole. Itis, in short, a wonderful white wine.

How's it taste?
COLOUR Pale straw, flecked with green.NOSE A powerful nose of white blossom, white nectarine and wet stones.Vanilla spice and flint build further complexity.PALATE Dense with power, sweet mandarin blossom overlaid with ripepeach and grapefruit. There is a lovely texture with gentle al dentetannin from fruit and oak. Hints of gunsmoke build intrigue. Withall the density and power of the wine, there is yet a lovely balanceand elegance.CELLAR Now through to 2030.

Jane Faulkner - Halliday's Wine Companion
Flavoursome yet somewhat reticent. Yes, there’s a lovely fragrance and the palate isfull of citrus and some stone fruit, all spiced up with a layer of creamy lees; not much,just enough.

Huon Hooke - The Real Review
Very light, bright colour. Similar restraint on the nose, with some creamy lees andtoasted-oak nuances and sotto voce fruit, the palate savoury, dry and somewhat lean.It seems to be still in its shell, ready to burst out given a little time and patience.Clean and refreshing, dry finish and good persistence. An excellent wine in themaking.
