- 4 TIME WINEMAKER OF THE YEAR INTERNATIONAL WINE CHALLENGE LONDON
- INTERNATIONAL MULTIPLE AWARD WINNER
A modern style of chardonnay with lemon, honey and stonefruit aromas integrated with some delicate cedar notes. The cool climate of the Adelaide Hills helps create a wine that has a fresh and zingy palate with a delightful complexity and lingering finish. The wine is stirred on lees once a week for 8 months and matured in brand new French oak hogsheads which result in an underlying delicate vanilla oak influence.
94 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"Wild yeast-fermented and matured in new French hogsheads, stirred weekly for 8 months. Gleaming straw-green, it has the length and grip Adelaide Hills confers on many of its best chardonnays, grip giving emphasis to its array of cool-grown chardonnay characteristics."
"Medium-full yellow. Smoky, meaty low-level sulfide and toasty oak bouquet. Some roasted hazelnut. Palate is soft and round; gentle in texture and easy, but not particularly penetrating. Nice wine, soft and pillowy. Finish is clean and dry. A good but slightly pedestrian fruit-plus-wood style."
