A beautiful Yarra Valley Chardonnay that opens with bright stonefruit flavours and aromas before cashew-y flavours develop on the textural mid-palate. Delicate vanillin oak flavours carry through the mid-palate before good acidity pulls out a crisp, clean finish. The perfect accompaniment to fresh white fish, poached lemon chicken or a basil pesto pasta.
91 Points, James Halliday - The Wine Companion "Machine-harvested, cultured yeast, fermented in French oak (10% new), 4 months lees stirring, 10 months in barrel. Takes a little while for the wine to send its message, but it then doesn't hesitate, filling the mouth with peach and melon fruit, acidity and oak both playing walk-on, walk-off roles."
