This Handpicked single vineyard Yarra Valley wine shows its class from the start. Pale straw, clean and star bright it glows in the glass asking to be drunk. Tight and subtle at first on the nose, with peach, mineral tones, hints of oak and some nuttiness. As the wine opens up you get the full complex array of different aromas including some yeasty tones from lees. Light clean and refreshing, extremely well balanced between the tart acid, fruit and good use of malo. Stone fruit and citrus flavours are made more interesting by the clear mineral overtones. Finishing up with good length and flavours that just stay. This is perfect example of a well-made cool climate chardonnay and will improve with 5+ years in the cellar. Stephen Read.
