Profile

Aiming for elegance, restraint and the ability to age, acid is bright and there’s generosity of flavour. Typically it shows white flowers, citrus, and nectarine notes. A flavourful and intense Chardonnay, with lovely ginger and orange zest notes as well as nectarine flavours. A vintage to age, and to drink straight away.

Critic Awards

An apex wine of the brand but like with all great Maisons this wine continues to evolve and transcend with each vintage. This vintage encompasses an intensity to the fruit with slick and schmick oak in support. Wild jasmine, honeysuckle, lemonade fruit and yellow nectarines. Baked peach cobbler and candied ginger lolly. Impossible not to find this absolutely delicious, no matter how hard you try.

Pale colour. Lovely white peach, nectarine, grapefruit tonic water aromas with grilled nut, hint marzipan notes. Delicious drinking wine with plentiful peach, nectarine, apricot flavours, fine chalky textures, classical creamy notes and underlying marzipan, hint vanilla notes. This is a text book modern Adelaide Hills Chardonnay.

Very light, bright colour; the nose slightly fusty with dried-flower heads, dried herbs and a little toasted almond. A subtle trace of butter shortbread; a wheaty/Weetbix overtone. Good depth of flavour, soft and properly dry, with a savoury follow-through, accessible now but also promising to reward a little cellar time.

A sleek, mid-weighted & highly contemporary chardonnay, embellishing a pungent mineral chassis with roasted cashew, nougat and curdy creaminess. Vanilla-cedar oak, an integrated framework. Apricot pith, white peach and nectarine, too. The acidity, palpably natural of feel and really juicy, towing impressive length. Among the better recent iterations of this rightly popular cuvée.
