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.
James Halliday 95 Points
Lower Yarra Valley, with a layered texture on the palate that reflects its inherent power from its low yield. At this stage, has the greatest drive of the '16 Chardonnays, but whether it will retain that advantage is in the lap of the gods.
