The Fogarty family first landed in Tasmania from Ireland in the mid-1800s, and have recently returned to their roots with their exciting project Lowestoft. Produced from the close-planted (8,300 vines per hectare) vines at Lowestoft planted in 1986. The fruit was hand-picked and matured in large-format French oak (35% new) for ten months.

The very best Chardonnay was sourced from vineyards across the Coal Valley (45%), Tasman Peninsula (25%), East Coast (25%) and Tamar Valley (5%) in Tasmania.

Pale straw in the glass with aromas of white peach, nectarine and grapefruit with a nicely dialled-in struck match/sulphide nuance and hints of soft spice, oatmeal, white flowers, nougat, lemon curd and clotted cream. There is impressive detail, clarity and composition here with a long, wonderfully expressive pure flow across the palate on rails of mineral and stone, not a hair out of place, a picture of tension and release. Beautiful drinking. Date: Feb 2023; Alcohol: 13.1%; Drink by: 2033; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; Dave Brookes; James Halliday Wine Companion

Peach, pear, grapefruit and lime, brine, struck match, almond meal, aniseed and spice. It’s a juicy number, cinnamon oatmeal, lime pie, chalky and flinty, some Parmesan rind umami quality, electric acidity through a creamy frame, with a long finish that’s all chalk dust and lime rind. So distinctive and individual. A great glass of Chardonnay here. Date: Nov 2023; Alcohol: 13%; Price: $107; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2023-2028+; Rated: 96 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
