Description

"Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is full with aromas of ripe, savoury citrus fruit harmoniously melded with an amalgam of yellow stonefruits and citrus fruits, creamy barrel-ferment, lemon-curd MLF and layers of nutty oak, forming a deep, rounded core. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a firm core with a rounded mouthfeel with concentrated flavours of savoury citrus fruit and yellow stonefruits entwined with subtle nutty oak and creamy barrel-ferment notes. The palate has richness and presence all enlivened by acid tension. The wine flows smoothly along a rounded line, leading to a long savoury, nutty finish. This is a rich, harmonious, smooth-flowing Chardonnay with flavours of ripe, savoury citrus and stonefruit with creamy and nutty oak and MLF elements. Match with roast poultry and pork over the next 3-4 years. Mendoza clone fruit from the ‘Ormond Valley’ block, vines 13 y.o., fully indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 13.8% alc., the wine 9 months in seasoned oak, undergoing some batonnage and over 50% MLF. Certified Asurequality organic" Raymond Chan, Feb 2018

"The wine shows lovely ripe fruit flavours of nectarine, rockmelon and mango with subtle vanilla and nougat undertones. The palate is succulent and beautifully rounded, delivering attractive fruit intensity and creamy texture, finishing long and very tasty. Approachable and friendly with plenty of appealing flavours. At its best: now to 2020" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Feb 2018
