"Great nose of smoky struck match reductiveness, Coche like complexity and fleshiness. Saline and minerally, tight acidity but plush ripe citrus fruit. Caramel and mocha notes on nose.  Creamy with elegant balance between oak, fruit and acidity.  Very typical Margaret River fruit with lovely lifted lemon, slightly honeyed spicy notes on palate.

Cool, slightly smoky, example of Chardonnay.  A fine line of acidity here. Purity of fruit.  Fleshy, good concentration but not a blockbuster style. Refined, elegant, very good potential for ageing.  Zesty, refined, long and succulent on the finish. - Decanter Magazine, December 2020

"Very light colour; bright yellow, while the bouquet is reserved and subtle, but not simplistic. Fresh, clean, lightly smoky aromas. The wine is light to medium-bodied and balanced, cleanly dry to finish and very pleasant in a medium-bodied, but quite intense style.  Traces of passionfruit and grapefruit. A lovely wine, both intense and refined. And astonishingly good value." - Huon Hooke, The Real Review

"Silky, viscose palate- rounded almost, shaped by phenolic edge and grip. Flinty and mineral, but with hallmark yellow peach, pink grapefruit and curry leaf. Rounding out in a tight back palate and defined by saline acid. Tremendous value at the price!” - Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion

"Very attractive aromas of fresh peaches and nectarines here with terrific purity, leading to a palate that has such sleek, focused style. Long, fresh and fleshy stone-fruit flavors sit in elegant, pure mode. Chablis-like. Drink now.” - James Suckling
