Crystal clear clarity - medium yellow. Citrus mineral and a little funk on the nose. Lemon butter - an unctuous forward palate of Medium plus intensity and a touch of salinity. Intensity without weight. Certainly in the conversation for Australia’s best Chardonnay. Not as peaches and cream as the big guns in the Margaret River or say Vat 47. Have been cutting down wine purchases of late but will need to source some of the latest vintage of Quartz Block. An excellent Chardonnay at its peak.

Notes as previous 2 notes - the most recent as in April 2020. This is a cracking new world Chardonnay and all previous notes apply. Very funky, smoky and an almond note. Barb said honey suckle. Have 1 left - not sure it can show better than this and previous tastings.

Mid Lemon in colour. Notes of orange peel and meal with leesy notes. On the palate citrus and ripe grapefruit flavours - intensity is profound. It might be 10 years of age but is still fresh, tight and light on its feet yet showing 10 years of complexity. No doubt one of the best Chardonnays in Australia from this quartz strewn vineyard in Mt Macedon planted in 1988. Like a Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru IMO where you could add another nought to the price.
