"This is a very complex wine, and while we're dubious about the ageworthiness of many Australian chardonnays, we think that this cries out for time in bottle. It has white-peach, citrus, oatmeal and nutty aromas that are well restrained. The palate is still very reserved and youthful with fine texture and a very long finish. Our advice is to hold onto it for at least another two years, and drink it with due ceremony and ocean trout. 5 Glasses, The Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide, 1 October 2002.

Complex and tightly structured, with intense lime and grapefruit on the front palate, which slowly changes into a mixture of citrus and pear. Finely chiseled acidity, cedary oak and lees yeastiness give excellent depth and graciously offset the richly textured underlying fruit. Finely interwoven and seamlessly presented, this is a standout Chardonnay of impeccable pedigree with an extended, elegant finish."
