Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grape varieties; originally from France’s Burgundy region, today it is planted almost anywhere that wine is produced. Chardonnay has a relatively neutral flavour profile, which allows winemakers to use a variety of skills and techniques to create a wide range of styles from taut and linear to rich and buttery.
This wine is all about fruit purity and elegance. Although barrel-fermented, and matured on lees, the oak is a background note, adding complexity and texture. The palate is crisp and textural, long and refined with wonderfully balanced acidity and a hint of salinity on the finish. Excellent.

'Light yellow, reserved colour. Smoky reductive aromas combine with roasted hazelnut, smoked charcuterie, smoked chicken and underlying grapefruit flavours. A delicious chardonay, intense and yet refined and tautly composed, the acidity seamless but bright and powering the whole thing along. Marvellous line and length; refreshing finish. A beautiful chardonnay.' Huon Hooke

other range we have seen this year. This Chardonnay was the highest scoring wine through a number of tasting panels.” Johan Axlund, Wine Buyer

“Effortless to taste, yet there are so many layers to this: creamed honey,
lemon curd, ginger fluff cake, all manner of stone fruit and their skins plus a refined texture. There’s almost an overload of flavour but then the sparky acidity tucks in everything neatly.” Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM7776
"Light, bright yellow colour with a very fresh, refined, intense, restrained but complex bouquet, which doesn't rely on oak or artifact for its detail. The wine is fruit-led and quietly intense, with lovely refinement and subtle depths. There are understated nuances here, which will only become more interesting with a little more time. Lots of lemon and other citrus nuances. A lovely wine which I'd like to drink now, but it has potential to improve further. This is outstanding value." Huon Hooke

Only 88 dozen made." Halliday Wine Companion
