Other Reviews….
The 2015 Reserve Bin A Chardonnay from Adelaide Hills has citrusy, grapefruit and white peach notes with an undercurrent of candied ginger, allspice, marmite, struck match and baking bread. Light to medium-bodied, the palate is still very tightly wound at this youthful stage, offering a glimpse at very fine, intense and minerally flavors, finishing with great poise and depth.

Bin 15, bottle no. AF308. Over the past 10 years this wine has (I suspect) won more gold medals than any other Australian chardonnay (Yattarna isn't entered in shows). Apart from maturation in French oak at 10 degrees C or less, the magic lies in the fruit and ultimately barrel selection, and I can see no reason why this thrilling wine won't add to its medal collection. It has a diamond-like intensity and purity to the fruit flavours, natural acidity and new French oak observers from the wings.
