Taste like a lemon cheesecake. The notes of acacia and butterscotch are faint now. But this has depth and length, talk dirty to me and a piercing line of acidity running through. — 3 days ago
So consistent. We are happy we are on the allocation. Honeysuckle and butterscotch play out on the nose. Beautiful display on the palate. Starts with a burst of energy, which effortlessly glides onto bright citrus notes, with sherbet. So clean and refreshing, we could drink this like water! — 8 days ago
Pale yellow with pleasing aromas of citrus and sweet peaches. One of the few barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc's which adds a wonderful toasty oak flavor setting this wine apart from the rest. Complex palate of flavors, fresh fruit, lemons, grapefruit, peaches, Asian pears and baked apple with tea and spicy acidity. Slight herb notes with a smooth and creamy well balanced finish ending with a gentle sweet character. A Fav! — 2 days ago

Mid Lemon in colour. Nutty aromas with some orange peel and leesy notes. On the medium weight palate some restrained stone fruit flavours well integrated with the oak - well balanced. Medium plus intensity and length. Proving once again that the strengths of Margaret River are Cabernet and blends as well as Chardonnay. Chloe is the premium Chardonnay cuvée from Woodlands. — 3 days ago
