About the wine

Tasting notes

Nutty and saline, pink grapefruit and green pear, some citrus zest and cinnamon quill, with just a little struck match. It’s savoury and hazelnutty, something of a sake-like umami flavour, flinty too, with a subtle buttery gloss, and again that brine-laced flavour on a finish of fine grip and length.

Expert review

utterly brimming with life and verve, right from the first sniff of its complex bouquet. An aroma and flavour combination of lemon, wax, nectarine, apricot, straw and honey give it enormous depth. In the mouth, the fruit is very bright, with an abundance of acid lending it much zippiness, while the mouthfeel is silky and generous. All up, this is a fantastic wine, and I foresee a long future ahead for it.' 95pts. Brendan Black – Wine Pilot.

The Grape

Chardonnay

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
