Quick Overview

This is smoking Chardonnay, and a little smoky with it too. The struck match, almond, nectarine and citrus leads the way, then into a palate that’s singing in clear voice. Flinty, bright, juicy, almond and stuck match – finesse and power – crunch of green pear and grapefruit to close. Oak lends some spice and structural scaffolding, but feels a minor player. Magnificent. It’s one of those “Am I 95 or 96 points here?” wines, and while I used to be indecisive, I still don’t much like putting numbers on bottles."

Rated : 96 Points Gary Winefront.com.au

Product Description

100% 95 clone Chardonnay from a single site in Tuerong. Fruit is crushed into the press. After pressing it's settled overnight and then racked to barrel. We played around with different levels of solids. A combination of yeasts were used to help build some complexity. No MLF. 20% new French oak, 10 months in barrel. The nose is smoky with grilled hazelnut, nectarine, ghee. Very tight, clean attack, a pure soda/mineral mid-palate. It's more delicate than '16 with better oak integration, and finishes with clean, chewy savouriness. - Will Byron, Onannon


"I’ve been getting a bit of heat from one of Australia’s most prominent Chardonnay fanciers about dragging the chain posting reviews on his favourite grape. Well, I get pressure on so many fronts, so it’s good to have a new one to add to my list. I’m all about diversity.
