"Made in similar fashion to the '13 Reserve Chardonnay, the difference fruit selection. Tasted side by side you can see exactly how this wine will develop over both the short and long term; the fruit line is tensed like the string of a bow, oak and acidity ready to act in support as the wine ages; the flavours quintessentially varietal, with melon, apple, grapefruit and white peach all straining at the leash. 95 Points" James Halliday Wine Companion 2017
A pure, yet complex example of Margaret River Chardonnay with half the wine matured for eight months, with minimal winemaker intervention, in French oak barriques, and the remainder in stainless steel tanks to retain fruit freshness and vibrancy. The finished wine is cellared on the Estate for another 12 months to ensure total balance and harmonization between fruit purity and oak complexity. Will reward cellaring over the next 5 years.
