Stone fruit and a touch of rockiness. Really liked how the acid worked here – never sticks out just holds the wine...

Good value here in a somewhat leaner yet full flavoured style of Aussie chardonnay that is nicely balanced. The nose...

A simple chardonnay with very pleasant tree fruit. Good concentration with nicely integrated oak. Good value.

A true value Chard that stands out from the rest in this price range

Description: Bright gold in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This wine features light toasted oak, lemon zest, honeydew melon, white peach, pear, green apples, nutmeg, clove and coconut. Medium+ body with good acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Note: Don't over chill this wine in order to for all the flavours to come out. I love that an entry level Chard has moderate alcohol of 13% vs 14% or higher.

Drink now or in the next 3-5 years on its own or pair it with .

Tasted: 16 Nov 2015
