Phenomenal quality. Sophistication plus. Long, powerful, elegant, slipped with oatmeal, fig and lemon-like flavour and then long, slatey and glycerol through the finish. Toasty oomph through the mid palate. Explosive aroma. Great length. I rarely buy chardonnay to cellar, but I have to tuck a couple of bottles of this away. This is as good as any Australian chardonnay from any region. Drink: 2008-2013. - 96 points. Campbell Mattinson The Wine Front
Mellifluous is the word that springs to mind when tasting this wine (although I’ m not a synaesthete) - it’ s silken smooth and laden with spice, dripping white peach and nectarine with a honey nougat richness. There’ s a little rough edged flintiness and fine citric acidity but nothing ruffles the composure of this little beauty. It’ s fine, long through the mouth and stamped with class from start to finish. - Rated : 95 Points Tasted : Nov08 Alcohol : 14% Closure : Screwcap Drink : 2008 - 2011 Gary Walsh The Wine Front
