REVIEWS

Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, August 2014

Fabulously intense. Quite astonishing. So intense it makes a deep impression. Glowing straw-yellow colour, peach and lime flavour/aroma, nuts, cream and wood spice, sweet fruitiness through the finish. Full-bodied style of chardonnay. Thrilling length. Floral/blossomy highlights. Amazing wine. 96 points

Andrew Graham, Australian Wine Review, February 2015

This sits on the cusp of greatness.
Sourced from the ultra low yielding Rebenburg vineyard at Mount Duneen, this was produced from handpicked grapes, whole bunch pressed to new oak, the natural ferment in barrel followed by 15 months maturation on gross lees in oak.
You can see that absolute pursuit of flavour too, in a wine that has almost too much going on. Too much ripe fruit, too much golden honey and butter oak, too much yeasty fullness. It all makes for a mighty mouthful of Chardonnay flavour, yet perhaps too chunky and without enough acid to be really refreshing.
Full-tilt Chardy, impressive for its concentration, just needing more restraint to be a super hero. 93 points

James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion, January 2015

Bright straw-gold; a finely structured and textured chardonnay; white peach, a hint of toasty oak and ripe citrus are held together by admirable acidity; it is this, and the likely low pH, that give the wine its streak of tactile minerally acidity. Find review here.

Houn Hooke, October 2014

Medium to full yellow, buttercup colour. It's rich and apricot-scented, quite complex, with lightly toasted cashew nuts and a tight, crisp, dry palate with linearity and restraint. Good intensity and piercing, tangy length augmented by vibrant acidity. Very smart chardonnay. Find review here.
