Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"The nose is elegantly concentrated with tight aromas of white and yellow stonefruits, along with citrus fruits, entwined with flinty less and reductive complexities, and fine, nutty oak and lifted aromatics. This is refined in expression.

Medium-bodied, the palate is softly concentrated with flavours of white and yellow stonefruits harmoniously melded with gentle nutty elements, oak toast and nuances of flinty minerals. The mouthfeel shows barrel-ferment creaminess, balanced by a line of ripe acidity. The wine flows with good energy, the concentrated, rounded core carrying to a long, creamy, nutty finish. This is an elegant and softly concentrated Chardonnay with harmonious layers of stonefruit, nuts and flint and a creamy mouthfeel."


5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, March 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright, even, light lemon-yellow colour with slight green hues. The nose is elegantly concentrated with tight aromas of white and yellow stonefruits, along with citrus fruits, entwined with flinty less and reductive complexities, and fine, nutty oak and lifted aromatics. This is refined in expression. Medium-bodied, the palate is softly concentrated with flavours of white and yellow stonefruits harmoniously melded with gentle nutty elements, oak toast and nuances of flinty minerals. The mouthfeel shows barrel-ferment creaminess, balanced by a line of ripe acidity. The wine flows with good energy, the concentrated, rounded core carrying to a long, creamy, nutty finish. This is an elegant and softly concentrated Chardonnay with harmonious layers of stonefruit, nuts and flint and a creamy mouthfeel. Match with poultry and pork over the next 4-5 years. Clone 15, 548 and 95 fruit, fully barrel-fermented, 84% by indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 8 months on lees in 24% new oak, with approx. one-third MLF."


4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"The key attributes of this wine are finesse and harmony, rather than power. A celebration of rich, ripe fruit flavours, it is gently seasoned with oak (French, typically 25 per cent new), producing a delicious wine with subtle winemaking input and concentrated varietal flavours. The 2015 vintage is a very elegant, youthful wine. Fragrant, full-bodied and finely poised, it has generous, citrusy, slightly spicy flavours and a well-integrated, toasty, nutty oak influence."
