Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
An elegant, vibrant and fragrant nose with lemon, lime and pear in the foreground. Notes of peach blossom and subtle jasmine create lift and combines with cardamom pod, almond meal and roasted cashew. The palate has immense purity, with power and persistence. Lime and lemon pith define the palate, which carries through to a delicately layered middle, threaded with a fine mineral spine. Sesame seed and blanched almonds enhance complexity, finishing with a sparkling acid structure. This wine has energy in its youth, and will build texture with cellaring.
94/100 James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion, April 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Cool crushed with some skin contact, then pressed, 100% fermented in French oak (40% new) with a mix of wild and cultured yeasts, matured for 9 months. Most chardonnay vignerons would give their eye teeth to have a wine as good as this as their entry point. Light bright colour, and a juicy array of nectarine, white peach and gentle citrus fruit have distracted all attention from the oak. A lovely wine."
93/100 & Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast, February 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"The Art Series' little brother is all grown up and ready to stand on its own as a terrific wine. Toasted hazelnuts accent bold pineapple and ripe citrus flavours in this full-bodied, slightly creamy bottling. It's complete and complex, with a long, zesty finish. Drink now–2020."
92/100 James Suckling, February 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Bright ripe melon and other tropical fruits, peaches too. Gently nutty, complex and stylish wine. The palate is richly flavoured, and acidity drives weighty Margaret River chardonnay texture. Drink now."
91/100 Wine Spectator, July 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"Succulent mango and peach flavours are ripe and lush, with spicy details and lemon zest notes on the finish. Intense and lively. Drink now through 2020."
