Brilliance.
This had been open in our fridge for 4 days and drank superbly the whole time.
At least a decade left in it.
Very partial to our brand.

Mid lemon in colour - crystal clear. A funky leesy note amongst the grapefruit with a touch of honey. A powerful palate of great intensity. Flavours in the grapefruit spectrum Partial malo adds interest. Great balance between restraint and mouth filling flavours. Plenty of skilled winemaking on show here.

Quite pale Lemon considering its age. Funky solids musty aromas. Medium bodied medium acid with grapefruit notes on palate and reasonable length. A good Chardonnay from this premium Adelaide Hills producer. From cousins Shaw and Smith - Michael Hill-Smith was Australia’s first Master of Wine. Have spread their wings to Tasmania with the premium Tolpuddle.

Established in 1989 by owner-cousins Martin Shaw & Michael Hill Smith. Pale lemon with medium+ aromas of stone and citrus fruits with flinty notes. On the palate lemon, nectarine and pear with biscuit notes. Medium+ body and length ending with great balance of acidity and citrus tang. Very Nice! Tasting Sample.
