"Bright, deep, golden yellow colour with depth, a little lighter on
the rim. This has a softly full nose of fresh yellow stonefruits
enriched by a layering of nutty oak and lees. This has a soft and
rounded density and concentration to the aromatics, that unfolds a little
butter and ripe tropical fruit detail. Medium-bodied, the palate is
rounded and fulsome with mouthfilling flavours of ripe yellow stonefruits
and tropical fruits entwined with layers of nutty oak and lees.
This unfolds creamy barrel-ferment elements and MLF detail, and the wine
shows some underlying power with plenty of drive, the soft acidity
enhancing he palate richness. The wine carries to a full,
fruit-chich finish with nutty and buttery flavours. This is an
elegantly sized Chardonnay with richness and ripeness, along with creamy
textures, unfolding buttery notes. Match with roasted poultry and
pork dishes over the next 3+ years. Fruit from 3 sites in the
Bridge Pa Triangle, one-third fermented in large oak vat, one-third in
barrique and one-third in tank, to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months in
barrel with batonnage and 100% MLF."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
"Beautifully fruited and youthfully charming, the wine shows golden
peach, rockmelon, vanilla, hazelnut and nougat characters on the nose,
followed by a succulent palate that is creamy and expansive. This is
gorgeously styled and richly expressed, offering terrific drinking. At
its best: now to 2022."
