A complex and elegant wine that glows with an intense, greeny gold hue and combines ripe melon and stonefruit aromas with honey, toast and butter on the nose. The medium-bodied palate is soft and textural with abundant peach and nectarine flavours, subtle leesy characters and Burgundian-style minerality on the finish, all complemented perfectly by crisp, limey acidity.
$35 per bottle . 2003 chardonnay
Intense and complex white peach / apricot / pear skin /lamnolin aromas with touches of grilled nuts.
Classically proportioned but elegant and fresh style and white peach / pearskin / lemon flavours underlying
savoury biscuity oak and minerally mouth-watering acidity.
Finishes chalky and long.
Very nice wine. 18.5 / 20
- Andrew Caillard MW, Langtons wine auctions.
Fuller, richer style than the 2002
Still restrained and tight with fine natural acid.
The early integration of fruit and oak flavours gives a complexity
and balance which is at once attractive and classy.
- Paul Tuminello, Wine Educator
Color - Pale Straw.
Aroma - Soft ripe stonefruit with hintys of oak and some complexity.
Palate - Soft, ripe fruit, very young and tight, wants time to develop and open up.
Should be excellent drinking from 2006.
