We have seen some beautiful Chardonnays under this label and Dr John Forrest has come through yet again. This has far more going on than you would usually expect from a Chardonnay selling at these kind of dollars. It is multi-layered with beautiful citrus and stone fruit accented with a fine touch of 'struck match' complexity, subtle oak and it has fantastic texture and drive. And the joy of picking up a Chardonnay with some bottle maturation is worth mentioning too.
Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow in colour, the bouquet is seamless with aromas of delicious lemon pudding and stone-fruit, framed with biscuity, mealy nuances.  The palate has medium weight with a beautiful creamy mouth feel, balanced with vibrant acidity, exuding flavours of buttery pastry and an almond, pear tarte tatin, enveloped with subtle French oak.  The wine has great length with the minerality lingering on the finish."
4 Stars & 17.5+/20 Raymond Chan, August 2016 (2013 Vintage)
Equal portions tank and barrel-fermented to 12.5% alc., the oaked portion in barrel for 10 months with MLF. Brilliant straw-yellow. This has a firm, gunflinty nose, quite tightly bound with a complex amalgam of stonefruits and savoury nutty elements. Fresh and crisp on palate, the barrel portion providing some richness and creaminess. Good acidity and crispness to balance along with fine textures. The flintiness is more restrained on palate, and toasty oak shows.
