Winemaker's Notes

The color is a brilliant pale yellow with tints of green. The nose shows freshly cut yellow-fleshed peaches with some underlying subtle barrel fermentation characters. The palate is rich and full, though tightly structured, showing a combination of poached stone fruit and sweet grapefruit flavors. The wine will develop over the years and the flavors will meld into a soft, clearly varietal Margaret River chardonnay. Ideal to accompany fish and shellfish or any full flavored white meat.

    (From 2005 Vintage) "Supple, graceful and elegant. An outpouring of lovely flavors on a polished, refined frame, offering quince-accented pineapple and passion fruit against spicy, creamy notes that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 1,000 cases imported."
