The wine is pale straw in color. Concentrated citrus and white peach fruit flavors are complimented by delicate yeast and subtle spice aromas. The palate is clean and fresh with vibrant fruit flavors, mineral characters and a good lingering finish.
"Vibrant gold in color, this Chardy, from a small region in South Australia, has a flinty, salty edge, but it doesn't overwhelm the concentrated citrus and stone fruit. There's a whiff of oak-derived smoke, like the embers of a beachside campfire. The palate offers tingly freshness and medium weight. Oak is present but more in a supporting role. Think Mâconnais with Aussie sunshine. Drink now–2028. Christina PICKARD."

"The barrel-fermented 2015 Chardonnay offers a lovely blend of oak and fruit, balancing each other out in their citrus and vanilla intensities. Toasted grain, white peach, ample weight and texture on the palate, all these point to a high-quality effort that should please any Chardonnay drinker. Yum! - Joe Czerwinski"
