Lovely toasty and vanilla nose indicating a rich well made chardonnay. Palate is buttery and creamy but also textured. Ripe stone fruit driven palate. Full bodied of course with a long satisfying finish. Made by Alex Cassegrain who was named winemaker of the year by the ASVO in 2021.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
