Wine tasting notes

Brilliant pale lemon with green highlights. The bouquet has a panoply of scents of great intensity and complexity – there is an interplay of the aromatic notes of white flowers, anise and lemon curd with the deeper notes of spicy oak, some yoghurt‐ like nuances and a hint of struck match. The deft palate shows both restraint and power. Taut citrus, pear and briny/mineral elements build in the mouth and meld perfectly with the savoury, nutty, fine‐grained oak which nevertheless remains unobtrusive. The finish has a pleasant grapefruit‐like tang and the signature length of flavour which shows great persistence. A wine of elegance & finesse.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2017) - 90 pts

A blend of fruit from five vineyards—all in the southern portion of Margaret River—the 2017 Chardonnay features classic scents of toasted hazelnuts and white peaches. It's medium-bodied and crisp, with bright, lime-like acids and a long, wet-stone finish.


James Halliday (2017) - 89 pts

Bright straw-green; a scented, fragrant, fresh bouquet, then a light-bodied palate that is pleasant, but lacks intensity. Time may well help. Date Tasted 10 Sept 2018
