Pale straw green in colour. Aromas of fresh cut peach flesh with accents of wild honey and hints of lemon myrtle. These are supported by fig and cinnamon spice complexities from wild fermentation. Layers of flavour build across the medium bodied palate, and reflect not only the fruit but the use of wild fermentation and ageing on yeast lees. On the palate the slightest hint of oak comes through as a hint of cinnamon and spice, highlighting the complexity derived from barrel matured reserve wine. Balanced acidity gives the wine thrust through to the refreshing finish. Food Pairing: Deliciously accompanies gnocchi with sauteed broad beans, feta, lemon and sage.

James SucklingVery pretty sliced apple and honey character. Medium body with lovely density of fruit and a flavorful finish. Stone and gun metal aftertaste. Excellent value. Screw cap.

Wine EnthusiastThis medium-bodied Chardonnay offers tangerine and melon flavors, subtle leesy and oaky notes and a plump, succulent mouthfeel. Yes, it fades quickly on the finish, but this a wine to quaff, not age. Drink now.

Wine SpectatorAn appealing, light-bodied mix of Key lime, pear and dried floral notes. Appealingly juicy and refreshing on the finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases imported.
