In the glass this wine had a pale lemon colour. On the nose it was of slightly less than average intensity, but had a developing character with notes of honeycomb, blossom, and sandalwood. On the palate it was of medium intensity, with more complexity and fruit than the nose – I got lemon and green apple, as well as some almond and white pepper. It had medium plus acidity, alcohol, body and length, with an apple and pepper finish. Most of all, it was unmistakably a Chardonnay.
I really liked this wine. It has something of a full style, but I enjoy that. While no one would confuse it with a steely Chablis, it was true to its cool climate origins. I also like a bit more oak (provided it’s good oak) in my Chardonnays, so I'll have to give their higher end version a try, because if it’s a significant step up from this I’m sure it will be a treat. This chardonnay embodies the purity of Tasmania’s fruit. Pale lemon-yellow in colour, this wine has a zesty, fleshy palate featuring flavours of lemon rind, nectarine and peach. Primary fruit characters of ripe white peach are complimented by secondary characters of cashew meal and toasted nuts. The palate is full and generous with a soft texture, underpinned by lemon citrus fruits and subtle oak.
