    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brilliant pale lemon yellow with a green tinge. Elegant, fragrant notes of a Granny Smith apple, white peach and pineapple salad with a fresh squeeze of lemon juice over the top. Some complex doughy yeast, custard ├ęclairs, lemon butter and a hint of vanillin oak punctuate the nose. A vibrant entry with a juicy mid palate displaying apple, stone fruit and zesty lemon. Lovely tight acid structure drives the length with some cooked lemon skin and lemon barley flavours lingering.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2011 Chardonnay is scented of grapefruit, fresh peaches and white blossoms with a hint of toastiness. Medium-bodied, it offers a good concentration of expressive stone fruit flavors with just a touch of oak, lingering with a long refreshingly crisp citrusy finish.

    The Wine Advocate

    Green-tinged straw. Aromas of pear skin, melon and musky lees, with a hint of iodine in the background. Spicy, penetrating orchard and citrus fruit flavors are complemented by notes of ginger and white pepper, with a late jolt of candied orange zest. Finishes dry, smoky and long, with lingering spiciness and impressive energy.

    This wine was disappointing to me, as it is too tart for my taste.
