Pale Lemon in colour. Barrel ferment characters. Oak is there on the medium minus intensity palate but perfectly integrated. From the poor 2011 vintage everywhere in Australia except the Hunter Valley and Western Australia. The wine is restrained, fine and delicate - good citrus notes on the light to medium weight palate with medium citric acid. A perfect example of why I think Chardonnay is better with oak treatment rather than unoaked. It is required and completes the picture as long as it doesn’t dominate. This is a great effort considering the vintage.

Delicious stuff from a tough vintage. Solid and long acid spine with tight & bright nectarine fruit notes.
