See several previous notes. Aromas of roasted cashew - funky leesy notes - barrel ferment characters. A light delicate palate showing more citrus and grapefruit than stone fruit characters. Leaner than an Leeuwin Art Series and the peaches and cream style. Tastes way younger than 10 years old. An exceptional Chardonnay.

2011 was a rather forgettable vintage in most parts of Australia particularly South Australia but it was good in Western Australia and the Hunter Valley which couldn’t be further apart. No other word but stunning. Sulphide funk with cashew nut and peach with oak all in perfect balance. Winner of 12 Trophies on the Australian Show Circuit and THE Chardonnay from the 2011 vintage in Australia. Excuse the torn label. I have 1 bottle left which will be consumed in the next 12 to 18 months.

Pale Gold. Aromas of grilled nuts (cashews) and stone fruit. M+ intensity Medium to full bodied with excellent length. A lovely mature Margaret River Chardonnay. Has won 12 Trophies on the Australian Show Circuit and will probably win more as it ages. Tasted again Easter 2018 on the Gold Coast with consistent notes. Lovely balance of sulphide funk grilled nuts and stone fruit. World Class.
