A verve expression of our cool climate Chardonnay from the pristine south of Margaret River. Chardonnay is harvested at moderate ripeness to retain freshness and natural balance. The embodiment of spring, perfume, texture, delicacy and personality.
2018 Review: Sourced from Wilyabrup and Carbunup. It is built on a deep-set core of natural acidity and deliberate fermentation and maturation in used French barriques. An elegant wine with perfect balance and length, the jasmine scents of the bouquet deliciously seductive. Drink to: 2027; Price: $24.00; Date Tasted: Oct 2019; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
