Ranked #13 of 21 2017 Chardonnay from Tumbarumba
Light yellow colour, toasted nut bouquet with almond and cashew hints. The palate soft and easygoing, gentle and rounded, the acidity is fresh and balanced and not shrill. The finish is clean and dry and balanced, smooth and refreshing. Oak is balanced and subtle. Straightforward and very pleasant.
Drink: 2018 to 2026
95 Points James Halliday
From Adelaide Hills, Tasmania and Tumbarumba, matured for 8 months in French oak (25% new). Super-elegant; carries itself with sotto voce confidence, fruit, oak and acid in nigh-on perfect balance; a crisp, lively finish. Drink to 2027.
