Quick Overview

The Sexton chardonnay vineyard was planted in 1997. It's at Gruyere in the lower valley. It turns out terrific chardonnay. This is rich, fine, seamless, quartz-like. It's complex in an integrated way; no bells, whistles or alarms but plenty going on regardless. Grapefruit and white peach, spent matches buried into the fruit, a smoky mineralogy.
It turns the power on but is long and gorgeous - and it'll be better again in 12-24 months. 95+ points

Product Description

Lusciously fruit driven, complex and delightfully unique, this Yarra Valley Chardonnay has loads of personality. There’s savoury smokiness and fruit flavours ahoy, including white stone fruits, apricot, apple, lime and lemon, all with a grapefruit backbone. Nutty flavours appear as the wine opens up giving it complexity and depth. This is a stylish wine hailing from a lineage of high achievers amongst wine judges

Mike Bennie 93 Points -It’s sleek and understated, touched by mealy, vanilla notes, cool across the palate but stains it gently with a slip of fruit-gentle creamy oak-cashew savouriness-spice. Pretty perfume shows delicate apple, nectarine and citrus scents given character from fleeting marzipan, flint and sweet spice complexity. It’s moreish, succulent, just a touch sweet fruited, lingers well. Not quite the drive of the 2015s, perhaps a little underpowered/lacking tension, but has a pleasing, gentle feel. Nice drinking. The Wine Front, 12 June 2017
