Pale straw with green hues. Lifted nose of nectarine, white flowers fruit, grapefruit, wet stone and flint. A rich entry filled with white flowers, stone fruit and preserved lemon gives way to subtle struck match all tightly bound with a fine lemon citrus acidity. The finish is long, linear and focussed with echoes back to preserved lemon.
This is a very interesting chardonnay. It smells sweet and bubble-gummy, which if nothing else lends the wine a seductive element. It lures you in. The palate is then lean and lemony, watery in part but grapefruity too. Maybe even a touch of half-ripe nectarine. Accordingly, it gives the wine a direct, piercing shape through the mouth â€“ before a burst of toasty, fruity, bitter flavour unleashes on the finish. Itâ€™s a wine of acts. Beginning, middle and end. It needs time, but itâ€™s a beauty. Rated : 94 Points Winefront.com.au
