A wine with strong Tasmanian credentials including an inner energy, steely reserve and powerful acidity. That's the groundwork for a long-lived chardonnay, right there. Immediately reserved and still youthful with grapefruit pith, lemon curd, cut pear, fleshy mango. Good, strong backbone in play with a linear line of citrus infusion. A waiting game kind of wine, be patient. Drink to: 2033; Price: $58.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2020; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
