A ripper little chardonnay from Chief Winemaker Virginia Willcock thanks to the warm and dry vintage which offers outstanding value. The winemaking is perfectly pitched to offer attractive upfront fruit and complexity in an earlier drinking style. Bright medium straw in colour it opens with tangy nectarine and white peach fruits typical of Margaret River that is lifted by spicy, nougat oak complexity with the slightest hint of smoky gunflint. There is then good generosity of fruit and subtle oak on the palate with a slightly creamy texture but also chalky acidity. Precision and fruit focus to finish again mark this as very classy for the price. Enjoy it over the next five years.
