The Wine

Bright pale straw with a slight golden hue. A beguiling perfume of elevated wattle honey, smoking wax, grilled white nectarine, white rose and ginger is rounded out by complex aromas of wet ocean limestone, lemon grass, Geraldton wax flowers and yeasty flat bread. Quite restrained in its youth, with more complexities to be unveiled over time. A bright yet creamy entry is supported by a beautifully taut line of acidity and incredible palate structure. An enticing pop of samphire complements the mineral, saline core, leading to a long, rich and dry finish with lingering hints of savoury beeswax.

The Review

"Glorious. So much scent, so pure through the palate, complex in general and then deliciously long. High class chardonnay for high class chardonnay lovers. Flint, grapefruit, apple and vanilla characters come topped with hay, fennel and custard powder. It’s a powerhouse wine but it’s also refreshing refined; there’s great purity through the palate and yet it still feels more than a little bit fancy."
