Voluptuous flavours of yellow peach, citrus and tropical fruit overlaying baked bread and creamy nuances from fine French oak.Download Full Winemaker Note
At release, the wine is a pale straw.
Delightful aromas of white peach and nectarines join subtle hints of cashew and cream.
Fresh flavours of stone fruit combine with a touch of nectarine, cashews and an underlying creaminess from extended lees stirring to deliver a mouth-filling and enjoyable wine. The wine has a clean, elegant palate and long, slightly warming finish.
This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2012.

2009 Estate Chardonnay give a good intensity of ripe golden delicious apple, white peach and poached pear aromas. Medium bodied with medium-high acid, it has a medium-long, purely fruited finish. Drink it now through 2013.
Western Australian, February 2011
Excellent value-for-money chardonnay in the under $20 category. Has a nice balanced mix of creamy peach fruit, a little edge of citrus and some nice French oak. Has a light creamy texture and a lingering pleasing finish. A wine for the short term.

Wine - Three of the Best
A thoroughly enjoyable Chardonnay with fresh flavours of peach, citrus and tropical fruits. The winemaker has given it a cellar life of three to five years if you'd like to put one down which I recommend.

The nose is wonderfully expressive with scents of ripe peach, lychee, mango, almond butter and pineapple with accents of vanilla. The palate confirms the nose offering a generous fruit melange with a generous dose of wood.
