Tasmanian and Yarra Valley fruit bursting with flavour and complexity in equal measure, yet linear in its profile. An amalgam of excellent fruit, mouth-watering sulphides, seamless oak integration and zest appeal, with everything reined-in by superfine acidity. Chardonnay nirvana well and truly thriving in Australia.
95 Points - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
This is a beauty. Powerful but graceful and refreshing. Layered with judicious sweet and spicy oak, sumptuous, fresh stone fruit and green apple flavours, detail in ‘mineral’ charm and ‘savoury note’. So much going on. And though so much going on, such harmony and precision, despite the assertive nature of the wine. It’s regal stuff here, done so well.
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.
