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.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Tom Vigeant rated this wine as 100/100 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.
Terry Jeans 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.
Jennifer Macdonald 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.
