Reviews and Ratings

Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Toasty aromas of oak and apple. Balanced acidity and not overly oaked on the palette with flavours of apple and pear. Great value at $13, especially for an Australian wine.

Would pair well with turkey or really any fall day. If you're the 'grandchild' (third generation) at your next holiday gathering, this would be a fun wine to bring.

Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Full-bodied with lemon, baked apple and oak aromas and flavours. Medium acidity with a baked apple finish. Pair with roasted chicken. Tasted July 15, 2018.
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale straw in colour with aromas of butter, green apples and lemon. It is full bodied with medium acidity. On the palate you get flavours of creamy butter, green apples and white citrus. This will pair well with chicken or turkey. If you are a fan of oaked/buttery Chardonnay then this is a terrific value wine for you. Tasted on July 15, 2018.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:
