IS THIS AUSTRALIA'S GREATEST EVER WHITE WINE?
Wine writers internationally have raved about the quality and intensity of this wine. A recent report in the Western Australian Business News maintains that the 2006 release should seriously be considered as 'Australia's greatest ever white wine'. Certainly, this is a near perfect Chardonnay and we can only add our voice to the choir of rave reviews.
Bright straw colour with pale straw hue. Pronounced, complex nose with top note of yeast lees, hazelnut, biscuit, melon, cashew and spice. Creamy texture and mouthfeel. Explosive palate flavours of yeast lees, biscuit and hazelnut – Totally mouthfilling. Very spicy back palate. Layers of cinnamon spice, yeast lees and melon. Exceptional length and depth, with the aftertaste lasting for minutes.
Cellar 4-5 years (2013-2014)
Bright and youthful colour; a complex array of nectarine, grapefruit and spice, particularly cinnamon, is offered on the bouquet; the palate exhibits understated power, with grilled nuts supporting the very generous, yet refined, level of stone fruit and oak; the finish is staggeringly long, fine and complex. The adoption (since '05) of screwcaps has brought a collective sigh of relief from its many admirers. Drink: 2011. Margaret River produces Australia's most complex chardonnays and this wine sits at the very top.
