Generous stone fruit and citrus character complement the texture and complexity achieved with barrel fermentation, lees stirring and maturation in French Oak Barriques and Puncheons.
“Attention to detail in both the vineyard and winery has paid dividends: this combines elegance and intensity, balance and length. White peach and citrussy acidity soar on the finish, imprinting themselves permanently on the very long palate and aftertaste. All class.” 95 Points. James Halliday. www.thewinecompanion.com.au
“Anything pinot noir can do, chardonnay can do better. In general. $30 is rarely ‘value’ territory but this is excellent buying, even at that price. It just gets the pitch right. Lemon curd, marzipan, white peach and smoky oak characters sit hand-in-glove in the best of ways. The finish is slightly chalky; entirely positive. Lovely chardonnay.” 93 Points. Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, April 2017.
