Awards/Reviews

93 pts Wine Spectator

This offers a vibrant, mouthwatering mix of lime peel, peach and pineapple flavors on a sleek and juicy frame, with hints of spearmint, matcha green tea and fresh ginger that linger on the long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2022.

94 pts Bob Campbell

Impressive chardonnay with grapefruit, lime, white peach, biscuit, struck-flint and attractive nutty-oak flavours flattered by peaches and cream texture and supported by juicy acidity. Drink 2021 to 2026.

Winemaker Notes

Appellation: Yarra Valley

Vineyards:  Sexton, Tarraford and Applejack Vineyards

2020 was a particularly challenging vintage across much of Australia, but we were very lucky here in the Yarra Valley.
It was a bit of a rollercoaster – with a cool, wet Spring, a dry December and then a mild February, punctuated by a few significant rain events.
This all led to lower than average yields across our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, primarily driven by tighter, smaller bunches – the consequence of which is naturally high acidity and incredible bright flavours – fresh melons and a citrus edge.
