4 Stars Michael Cooper:
Light lemon/green, this Chardonnay is full-bodied and smooth, with citrus and stone-fruit flavours, showing good complexity, mealy notes, a slightly creamy texture, and lots of drink-young appeal.

4 Stars Cuisine Magazine Sept 2019

Inviting and generous with almond and baked bread aromas. The expressions of melon and fig on the palate suggest a ripe warm and fruity style yet the extended lees contact has tempered this effect resulting in a wine with panache.

4 Stars Winestate Magazine Oct 2019

Drinking well now, this generous wine was hand-picked and matured for a year in American and French oak casks. Fragrant and full-bodied, it has citrus and stone-fruit flavours, mealy, savoury notes adding complexity, and a smooth, slightly creamy finish.
