Brilliant pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Aromas of nectarine, citrus and subtle dried honey mix with a whiff of grapefruit and gun flint. Generous ripe pear, fleshy peach and dried honey flavours meld into traces of crème brulee and biscuity nougat characters. Gentle cream tinged finish with a balanced freshness and refined aftertaste.

Other Reviews…
Single vineyard chardonnay from the Lone Star Creek vineyard at Woori Yallock.
Straw into yellow in colour terms but it remains fresher than a daisy. That said, there’s a lot going on here. It’s a flinty, pear-faced, nectarine-driven chardonnay with green olive and white peach characters punching through to a chalk-laced finish. There’s cedarwood here too, fully integrated, along with lime notes; almost into lime spider territory, though neatly tucked. It’s a lovely wine. Beautiful. Drink 2021-2028.
