Richly textured with predominately ripe fruits and oak notes at this young age, but in a way that somehow conveys a sense of understated elegance. Enough acidity to carry the medium to full body.
My first of this iconic Chard from down under. And it did not disappoint.

So much going on.. dark cherry almost herbal on the nose, dark fruits, clove, medium acidity, medium low alcohol .. generous toasty oak, cigar/ tobacco... Evolves and almost intensifies with time in the glass. Love it — 18 days ago
Pear, jasmine, long zesty acidity, rice pudding, developing for 5-10 more easily. Its a dream. — 23 days ago
2018 vintage. Very fine-grained tannins, good mix of fruit and earthier notes. Fresh blackberry, black cherry, cassis, black plum, decaying leaves, leather, cedar, a little fluffy, yeasty bit I could do without, stale sage, stale allspice. Much more Bordelais than Barossa. — a month ago
I’m not usually a fan of Sauvignon Blanc, but this was a bit more complex than most. Nice melon note, with a smooth mouthfeel. Definitely a good summer wine for its crispness. Not sweet, either, which I prefer. — 24 days ago
