97 Points - James Halliday

Can fairly be said to represent the state of the art of chardonnay in Australia today, without in any way diminishing the stature of single vineyard wines such as Leeuwin Estate and Giaconda; has exceptional focus and intensity without sacrificing elegance; fruit, oak and acidity are seamless, the palate of extreme length. Three trophies Sydney Wine Show '10.

Region

McLaren Vale is situated south of The Barossa Valley in South Eastern Australia. The local climates vary enormously according to altitude and exposure to the cooling sea breezes. Red grapes flourish here due to the warm climate and varied soil type and the region is best known for soft and juicy Shiraz, old-vine Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The climate is similar to that of the Mediterranean climate with four clear seasons. We can highly recommend the producers Kay Brothers, Clarendon Hills and Shirvington Estate from whom we have some fantastic wines.
