Unquestionably one of the best Chardonnays produced in Australia from an extraordinary site. Perfumed with citrus, pear and stone fruit aromas which are enhanced by the barrel ageing. Multilayered and complex, combining Bosc pear, nectarine and citrus notes. Wonderfully balanced by the savoury acidity. 96 points - Mike Bennie Can be cellared with confidence for at least 10 years.

This wine sees about 30% new oak which is joined by both ceramic and amphora-matured chardonnay. The wine is a result of vineyard selection, with fruit sourced from four blocks of chardonnay. Vanya explained that there is no recipe for this wine, however, that it is always done on fruit selection from vine. Finely wrought wine, lacy and pure, shows incredible acid line and a web of mineral, fruit and light savouriness surrounding. Drives with authority and precision across the palate, feels very pure, energetic and refreshing. An exceptional wine here, you get that from texture alone. Stellar release.
