|Country of Origin||Australia|
|Awards||Blue Gold / Top 100 Sydney International Wine Competition 92 points - James Halliday, Wine Companion|
A layered nose showing white stone fruits and spice with hints of cashews, chalky and flint notes. The wine has power and poise, balanced by a tight, linear structure with superb texture and complexity.
‘The Minimalist’ Chardonnay finishes with exceptional natural acidity and lingering fruit flavour. Barrel fermented (30% new) under the aegis of ambient yeast before almost immediate bottling, this is an effortless mid-weighted chardonnay. Brimming with forward peachy notes curling their way around a creamy core of cashew, vanilla bean and nougat. The oak, a guiding totem. | James Halliday, Wine Companion
