"I’ve ridden my bike past this vineyard a few hundred times but I’ve never turned in or indeed given it much thought. It looks unprepossessing. But geez, would ya cop a load of this. Stonefruit, nougat, pebbles and bams of citrus, juice and blossom. It’s seductive and it’s rich, but it’s also thrillingly long. It’s a “winemaker’s style”, which has been known to make wine drinkers run/ride a mile, but there’s power to the palate; flesh amid the sear of acidity. Stash some of this away for a couple of years and you are in clover. Love at first swig.Rating: 95." Campbell Mattinson. The Winefront.
This Chardonnay has undergone traditional barrel fermentation, matured on lees for ten months. The wine is aromatically complex with notes of oatmeal, nectarine and white peach. The palate is intensely citrus with a fine textured structure that provides a great length. A classic Beechworth style, enjoy now or cellar up to 7 years.
