“Made from original 1969 plantings and 1980 cuttings from the original vines at Yarra Yering. A highly individual style, reflecting its single vineyard origin. A little ginger cream spice and texture from barrel maturation and fermentation add layers, depth and intrigue while the fresh line of acidity drives the palate prolonging the fruit flavour.” - James Halliday Wine Companion, Aug 2017
“Vineyards planted in 1969, wine fermented in barrel, a majority portion of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation. ‘Traditional’ feel.
It’s a serious feeling chardonnay of medium weight, full intensity, curls of smoke and creamy barrel work, crisp underlying acidity. Mellow and mouthwatering stone fruits, cashew butter, fine chalky-flinty minerality and sheets of crisp acidity. It’s a wine that takes its time to spread through the palate, but retains vitality, persistence and structure. In essence, it’s a quietly powerful chardonnay of grace.” - Mike Bennie, Wine Front, August 2017
