So good. Lemon custard, slight nuttiness, briney minerality and stone fruits. At such ease in the gob with effortless length.

Big massive deep offensive butter. But well played with the right food.

Amazing balance of tight fresh fruit and smooth briochey notes and texture. Another please?

Over use of preservative and the acid is really harsh. Not a fan, topped off with pencil shaving oak not in balance

(Delectable management, another error! There are three duplicates for this in your database, each with slightly different wording. This is Hoddles Creek Estate 1er Yarra Valley Chardonnay. Also, consolidate ALL the duplicates, some of which are listed as Hoddles Creek and some as Hoddles Creek Estate!) This is a powerful chardonnay. Lots of concentrated fruit and a good serving of oak toastiness. Struck match. Thankfully it’s in balance, if not yet completely integrated. It really needs time, but it’s impressive now. Its best is yet to come.

Don't often have this style these days and it went very well with the chook last night. A little toasty, rounded & smoothed by lingering acidity.

Balance the strong impression. Strong line and drive with medium body and acid. Mineral element and long finish.

Great expression of an Australian Chardonnay. Well balanced fruit and toast flavours, with solid body.

Not sure what the problem was with this bottle. My palate? The wine going through a change at three years? Rough, corse, tannic and acidic this wine felt forced. I have another bottle and I think I'll leave it for a few years. Shame.
