Crystal clear with a persistent bead. The Bay of Fires Pinot Chardonnay is light straw in colour, with a fresh green gold hue. A very complex wine exhibiting toast, lanolin, sea brine and fresh yoghurt characters on the nose.
The palate is finely structured and yet is long, powerful and complex. Multiple layers of oyster, truffle and cherry brandy build in this intriguing wine. The wine has great depth of character from extended ageing and yet retains a fresh vibrancy of life.
Bright, pale straw-green; showing little development from its 3 years on lees; the bouquet is complex, with toast/brioche/honey aromas leading into a beautifully balanced palate, with fresh stone fruit to the fore, creamy brioche coming again on the finish. Rating: 95 Points; James Halliday
