Description

  • Apricot & nectarine
  • Apple & citrus
  • Subtle outmeal
  • Clean acidity

"Immediately attractive, it's elegantly fragrant showing apricot, apple, citrus peel and subtle oatmeal notes, followed by a juicy mouthfeel offering creamy texture and refreshing acidity, making it approachable and delightfully enjoyable. At its best: now to 2024" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2021

The nose displays fresh and fruit-driven aromas of citrus and nectarine with subtle creamy notes. The palate is likewise fruit-driven and elegant with excellent purity. Stone-fruits and citrus flavours build to a pleasingly round mouthfeel before being carried to a dry finish by clean acidity.

If 2020 was all about the heat, then 2021 will be remembered as the wet season. In many parts of Australia, it was unseasonably wet in winter but not at critical times to do damage nor impact the resultant ripeness of the grapes. A cool and dry summer meant even ripening was achieved between dry and rainy spells and the ensuing fruit quality was excellent and for once yields were up making for a bumper harvest in 2021.

Food Pairing: A very well balanced and attractive Chardonnay that will be a versatile companion to a wide range of seafood and white meats.
