- Cellar Drink Now - 5 years (2017-2022)
- ABV 13%
- Closure: Stelvin
Brilliant pale straw colour with glimmeringly green tinged edges and a watery hue. Scented white peach aromas meld into honeyed citrus like characters followed by some cashew, biscuity oak and spicy nougat. Richly flavoured yet light on its feet, a subtle creamy textural feel is perfectly counterpointed by a burst of freshness. Mouthfilling white peach and dried honey flavours interact with cashew, biscuity nougat and spice. Excellent length and balance. Long finish of white peaches, dried honey, citrusy nougat, biscuity cashew like characters and spice. A superb example of modern Australian Chardonnay.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, wild and cultured yeast, fermented on solids in French barriques (31%), matured for 11 months. Everything has been done to make this standout chardonnay in Coonawarra, and indeed it's a very smart wine by any standards. The balance of fruit flavours (stone fruit/citrus), and the integration of oak (the mouthfeel) are impeccable, but its X-factor comes with its length. Drink by 2024.
