Expert Review

Creamy with elegant balance between oak, fruit and acidity. Very typical Margaret River fruit with lovely lifted lemon, slightly honeyed spicy notes on palate. RS: Great nose of smoky struck match reductiveness, Coche like complexity and fleshiness. Saline and minerally, tight acidity but plush ripe citrus fruit. BW: Caramel and mocha notes on nose. Creamy with elegant balance between oak, fruit and acidity. Very typical Margaret River fruit with lovely lifted lemon, slightly honeyed spicy notes on palate. AH: Cool, slightly smoky, example of Chardonnay. A fine line of acidity here. Purity of fruit. Fleshy, good concentration but not a blockbuster style. Refined, elegant, very good potential for ageing. Zesty, refined, long and succulent on the finish.
