Judging panel chair, Corey Ryan, described it as an “outstanding“ example of modern-style Australian Chardonnay in a solid class of wines. “It was tight and steely, with lovely intensity of flavour”

Medium straw, stone fruit and citrus blossom. White peach and citrus with a hint of brioche, good weight and mouthfeel. An elegant wine. Vegan Friendly

Wine Making

Wine Making

Vinification: Free run juice taken and placed directly into new & seasoned French Oak barrels. Indigenous yeast ferment, matured for 12 months

Vintage Conditions: In 2019 exceptional winter rainfall gave us a full soil moisture profile and budburst occurred on par with long term averages with very solid early shoot growth. Mid December through to the early March was extremely dry with virtually no rainfall. The mild days and cool nights in late February and early March aided in the final ripen creating strong varietal characters and crisp natural acids.

Vine Clone: Bernard 76

Harvest Date: March 6, 2019

Wine Reviewer Comments

Wine Reviewer Comments

Super toasty complexity on the nutty/figgy nose with lovely richness and depth of toasty/lemon meringue flavours with controlled lemony length – Winestate Magazine

Aromas of pear, honey and malt; subtle tropical notes. The palate is light-bodied and delicate, restrained and fresh, with fine balance and moderate length. It’s subtle and moreish. Oak is underplayed. A very good modern Australian chardonnay – The Real Review
