The Real Review
Mid-straw, bright and brilliant in the glass. Aromas of struck match, grilled nuts, grapefruit pith, white flowers and melon skin. Plenty going on here. Fine, focused, long and layered, there’s a lovely core of pithy citrus along with just-ripe peach and nougat. Smart mouth-feel, texture and poise. - Gold, 95 points, Aaron Brasher.

The mistake with this wine – or any chardonnay, for that matter, is to serve it too cold. That just muffles the flavours. Guilty. However, this opened up in no time allowing a full spread of stone fruit, lemon, mandarin, ginger fluff cake and clotted cream. The oak is neatly embedded into the body, adding some depth and spicy nuances, and the superfine acidity drives this to a Formula 1 finish. - Gold, 95 points, Jane Faulkner
