The Reserve range continues to be the best of what we are able to produce in a given vintage. Our 10th consecutive release of our Reserve Chardonnay, 100% of the fruit for this wine is from our oldest Chardonnay vineyard, the Lagan Estate. The low yielding vineyard produces bunches with characteristic ‘hen and chicken’ architecture typical of the Gingin clone. Natural fermentation on fruit is encouraged to further emphasise the personality of this wonderful site, resulting in a fine boned medium bodied Chardonnay offering citrus, nashi pears and tangy stone fruits with a lovely saline / oyster-shell character in the background.

The bouquet is shy and slightly muffled, with some smoky oak nuances, plus a trace of honeyed, malty solids-like touches. Nougat. Complex. Intense lemony fruit powers the palate, with lively, balanced acidity that refreshes the mouth nicely. Long, energetic aftertaste - a very smart wine indeed. Ideally it needs another year. 23 MAY 2020
