Wine Colour
On release the wine is a very pale straw colour with a youthful green hue.

Wine Bouquet
The wine has intense lifted aromas of melon and lime with hints of stone fruits. There are underlying tropical notes of green pineapple and guava and subtle secondary characters of flint, cedar and spice.

Wine Palate
The palate delivers what the bouquet promises; citrus fruits, fig and melon flavours along with a clean, mineral acidity and a touch of lemon zest. Texturally, it is very delicate, with a creamy mid palate and integrated oak. The Clare Valley parcel delivers mid palate fleshiness whilst the Margaret River component contributes restrained flinty notes that are typical of this region. Overall, the wine has a great palate line with length which lingers long after the wine is consumed.

    Screw cap. An excellent Chardonnay: supple, ripely flavored, and moderately rich, it has a crisp backbone and a very long finish, tasting of peach, vanilla, candied lemon, grapefruit, toast, vanilla, and oak. Here Clare Valley fruit provides structure, acidity and length; Margaret River voluptuous fruit. [2015 - 2017].
