92 pts Wine Enthusiast Editors’ Choice May 2021
This is a well-priced Chardonnay that champions the distinct character of Australia’s coolest climate winegrowing region. It offers flavors of melon, peach, ginger and toasty oak nuances. It’s both corpulent and refreshing, linear and crisp, with a salty mineral note adding complexity to the fleshy fruit and spice flavors.
This wine is bright, pale straw in color with green tinges. Zesty melon aromas alongside some riper nectarine. On the palate, it is fresh, youthful and appealing. There are zingy citrus flavours of lemon and grapefruit, with some subtle creaminess complexity, with a zesty tight finish.
Try it with Tasmanian smoked salmon topped with a light creamy mayonnaise and capers. It is also very good with ripe camembert and apple segments.
