Natalie's Score: 91/100
A rich, round Australian Chardonnay with lovely aromas of green apple, almond and light spices. Terrific finish. The palate is mouth-filling and expansive, yet balanced. Finishes with attractive orchard fruit and some smoke. Full-bodied goodness is perfect for grilled chicken.
Chardonnay food pairings: chicken club sandwich, macaroni & cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, squash dishes, turkey burgers.

Reviews and Ratings
|Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Lovely oakiness is well integrated into this balanced chardonnay with medium acidity and notes of green apple and lemon/lime. If you like the oaky flavour this one would be a good pairing with bbq chicken and roasted fennel bulb.
|Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This full-bodied white has flavours of ripe peach apple, vanilla and toast with a long buttery finish as the acidity refreshes.
Pair with seafood or chicken.
Drink now or cellar until 2018.
Date tasted: November 2014.
|Donna Hargrove rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Light on the nose. Clean and smooth finish. Would pair well with poultry.
|Tom Vigeant rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Apple, minerality and a bit of oak and citrus on the nose. Lively acidity, medium body, fruit only shyly comes through. Needs a couple of years to bring acidity in check if you are drinking on its own, or pair with roasted chicken, grilled fish, summer salads.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Rich aromas of vanilla and caramel, lemon and apple. Hints of cedar and smoke. Lemon, apple and caramel also come through on the palate. Longer finish. Would be great with a roast chicken or seafood. 89+
|Astrid Young - Sommelier ISG CAPS rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
New French oak jumps right out of the glass, with a smokiness attributable to a fairly heavy toast. Savory, flinty and with warm fireplace aromas, lightly citrus on the palate with some grilled tropical fruit (pineapple) quite prominent. acidity seems disjointed on the finish, lacks a certina elegance at the moment but will likely reward a bit of cellaring. would be excellent with a Hawaiian style pizza with smoked ham and pineapple; also great with a nice holiday ham or any smoked fish.
|Jane LeFresne reviewed this wine as follows:|
With the first smell of this wine you get the traditional aromas of chardonnay. Buttery, brioche followed by hints of lemon and a slight vanilla.
Flavours of green apple, lemon, biscuit. Good, crisp acidity. It would pair nicely with a pasta and white cream sauce or your holiday turkey.
