More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Chardonnay’s versatility makes for interesting winemaking and we employ several techniques to achieve our goal of producing a modern Chardonnay that is crisp, fresh and exciting. We are aiming to capture the lemon / lime citrus flavours and subtly support this with thoughtful use of high quality, tight grain French oak barrels for fermentation and maturation.
“Our wines reflect both a proud winemaking heritage and contemporary, innovative Australian wine styles - crafted and bottled at the family estate in Mudgee, Australia. I hope you enjoy drinking these wines as much as we enjoyed making them.” Robert Oatley.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
