The wine’s aroma is strongly influenced by pungent struck match, but has a stone fruit underlay. This is seen more on the palate which is dry and zesty acid driven. A supple, medium bodied and elegant wine with a long finish. All in all an attractive Chardonnay. I prefer this wine over the Reserve Chardonnay.

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.
