This is classy Chardonnay. It's tight, mineral and lean yet, bright, vibrant, powerful, complex and long. Aromas of grapefruit, melon and stone fruit with hints of struck match an minerality. The palate is rich and vibrant, yet fresh. There are melon, citrus and stone fruit flavours with biscuity characters and a clean dry finish. It's only just released no there's no reviews but, if this doesn't score 96 and above, we'll eat our hats. This is seriously good Aussie Chardonnay!

From both the Fighting Gully Road and nearby Smith Vineyard. It's a crackerjack chardonnay. Elegant and yet well-flavoured. Persistent too. It tastes of peach, grapefruit, oatmeal, shell-grit and sweet/spicy oak, and while it's fresh and unhindered through the palate it just wants to go on and on through the finish.
