"The Chardonnay vines are over 40 years old at Wantirna Estate. They know what they’re about. Straw-yellow in colour and carrying a resounding burst of flavour. Lean this certainly is not. And yet it boasts the cut and sparkle of quartz. Stonefruit, grilled nuts, sweet cedar and spice. There’s a bran-like character here too, a certain mealiness. The finish has appreciable length. It warrants the word gravitas. I wouldn’t hesitate."
