Natalie's Score: 89/100

Lovely butterscotch and toasted almond on the nose of this full-bodied, luscious, well-priced Australian Chardonnay. Golden apple and white peach on the palate. The higher altitude of the Adelaide Hills makes it a cool climate with a long, slow ripening season that produces crisp white wines. This wine is oak fermented which gives it a toasty note. Pair with roast chicken.

Chardonnay food pairings: roast chicken, pan-seared swordfish or vegetarian dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale straw with a green hue and aromas of green apples, butterscotch and biscuits. It is full bodied with biting acidity and has flavours of green apple, white grapefruit and peach. This will pair well with roasted turkey and chicken. An excellent value wine. Tasted on March 31, 2019.
