"Hand-picked and sorted, pressed to French puncheons (20% new) for wild ferment and 10 months maturation. Incredible length and aftertaste, a Yarra Valley classic. Winner James Halliday Chardonnay Challenge '19."

- James Halliday, 2019


"Straw colured with green hues. Burnt match and gunflint sits over grapefruit, lemon, white flowers and green skinned nectarine. The impression is of leanness and tightness, of treading lower ripeness. The palate is beautifully integrated and complex, revealing more with time in the glass. Flint and wet stones, slate, nectarines, papaya and white flowers carried on a seamlessly textured, creamy medium body. The finish is all green apples and lemons – persistent, long and precise with savoury phenolics and mineral refreshment. Linear, formed and complex."
