Tasting Notes

Pale straw with green hues. Lifted and fragrant aromas of cut pear, white peach, nectarine, citrus and custard apple are supported by baking spices and toasted cashew. The palate shows richness and finesse with flavours of ripe peach and pear providing a fleshy textural quality, complemented by overtones of crème brûlée and oatmeal. These characters are beautifully balanced by fresh citrus acidity and subtle oak nuances, giving the wine depth and finishing with incredible length.

"Attractive pear, apple, lemon curd and gun flint with lemon peel, as well as lime and white nectarine. The palate has a very composed feel with intense peach and grilled-almond flavors. Some pie crust to close. Lots to like here."

93 Point Rated - Angus Hughson Wine Pilot
"One of the signs of a great winery is their ability to craft quality wines in challenging years. It is not easy and Mother Nature can throw down plenty of curveballs. Here is an example of how Henschke generally get it right when the odds are stacked against them. The hot 2018 vintage was tough for elegant white wines so this is a triumph with its restrained and understated style. There are pretty citrus and floral aromas that are well matched to subtle oak with some attractive struck match and barrel ferment complexity. The palate is then savoury – cashew, citrus and nectarine flavours are underscored by balanced acidity in a zesty style with good length. This is a well composed Adelaide Hills Chardonnay that is hard to fault."


92 Point Rated - Joe Czerwinski Robert Parker Wine Advocate

"Subtle shadings of toasted grain accent pineapple and white nectarines in the 2018 Croft Chardonnay. All barrel fermented (typically in around 15% new oak), this is a medium to full-bodied, plump, generous wine in the mouth, with a fine, silky texture and lingering suggestions of pencil shavings and citrus on the finish. It should drink well for at least another five years, and possibly longer."


90 Point Rated- James Halliday Wine Companion 

"Not barrel-fermented, simply matured in French barriques (only 18% new). It throws down a challenge in this day and age, the fruit fighting back with its thrust and penetration. It is still newborn, with plenty of development potential, although the price may cause some to blink."


90 Point Rated- Campbell Mattinson The Wine Front 

Oak was the first thing to hit me when I picked this up. Cedary, toasty, sawdusty oak. I let it rest awhile and indeed, transferred it into a large-bowled glass, and when I came back to it the fruit had fleshed out significantly. It’s a kind of candied fruit with wet concrete, lime, sherbet and peach aspects. It feels quite honed, quite elegant through the finish though again oak notes take over the aftertaste. It’s a bit of a ride; I’m not sure that integration is its strongest point.





Technical

After a typical wet and cold winter, spring brought particularly mild and unstable weather to Lenswood with fogs, rain, and numerous

hail events, fortunately with no resulting damage. These cold hail blasts delayed flowering, and due to an early Harvest moon, the growing season became quite compressed, requiuring more work in the wineyard with shoot thinning and foilage lifting. A long, dry mild spell from Christmas to Easter provided ideal ripening conditions; allowing tannins to mature, acids to modeate and depth of flavour to develop. Fruit quality across the board was outstanding, the whites in particular for their purity and balance, which really defined the season after some challenging early conditions. 2018 was a fantastic year for Lenswood, with high natural acidities and excellent varietal character. 

100% barrel fermented. Matured in 18% new and 82% seasoned French barriques for 10 months prior to blending and bottling.
