First time tasting this producer. Burgundy esque. Way above average in every way. I could drink a whole bottle in literally no time.

Developing nicely. Acids holds the pitch whilst the fruit, oak and secondary flavours make the melody. Still fresh but with nice richness. Happy as Larry! 94.

By Far the best of the Chardonnays, all they do is gold.

Wow! When I was told this was as good as White Burgundy I chuckled but after drinking the bottle I’d say it’s as close to it as you can get. Not quite White Burgundy but this is one of the most balanced Chardonnay’s I’ve ever had! Killer wine from down under folks.

Oaky. Medium intensity. Closed in the beginning but opened up later. Very round w/ citrus zest & mineral finish. Great acidity, rich in flavor. Hand-picked, natural fermentation at cool temp for 1-2 mo, small amount of stirring to start MLF. The wine is racked, fined & lightly filtered before bottling 11 mo after picking. Geelong is located in the Port Phillip zone of Victoria. Chardonnay is 1 of the region's most regarded. I only tasted a glass & didn’t have time to explore the wine so need to revisit. Rating 3,8/5

3/6.5/9.5 = 19 out of 100 = 96.5
Very happy with that!
Big buttery lingers!
Will wait 2 more years for the next try.
Plenty of acid 4 years in
