"High quality estate-grown fruit is the foundation of the wine, mature vines a part of the story. The flavours encompass white peach, nectarine and cashew in a stream of citrussy acidity." - Halliday

"Devils Lair 2018 Chardonnay was hand harvested in early March from selected south easterly facing blocks at the Devils Lair Vineyard. A cool fermentation in French oak barrels was followed by occasional stirring on lees for 9 months. A wine of great vibrancy, layers and flavour. It is brilliant drinking now or over the next 10+ years"

"NOSE: Classical Devils Lair aromas of pink grapefruit, melon and crème nougat. Subtle citrus blossom and graphite intermingle presenting a wine of freshness, flavour and complexity.

PALATE: Classic powerful white stone fruit dominates the palate with a vibrant core of citrus and pink grapefruit pith. Delicate use of oak and gentle lees stirring adds a subtle creaminess that overlays a textural and richly flavoured wine."
