Whole-bunch pressed, barrel-fermented and matured 9 months in French oak, this A restrained but flavourful take on cool climate Chardonnay.
In their own words: "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 classic of the range, and arguably one of the most widely respected Aussie Chardonnays in its price bracket.

The Review:
Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front - April 2022
Its impeccable self. Flavours of pear and quartz, nectarine and cedar, a gentle floral element, a subtle lactose note. It feels powerful, taut and refined at once. This is not a smack-you-in-the-eyes chardonnay and yet its quality and intensity are clear. As with many of the finest Australian chardonnays now, this will need a year or three from release to start showing its best self. 95 points
