Very pale straw with a light green rim. An amalgam of aromatics working in harmony - primarily yellow stone fruit (nectarine) and honeydew melon with soft pistachio nougat... and enchantingly/unexpectedly from this white grape variety, blueberry bavarois! Barely recognizable savory French oak imparts a sensitive touch to sign off on a complex and appealing nose. A soft and delicate mouth coating/laminated acidity fills out the palate and gently conveys the fermented spoils of Adelaide Hills Chardonnay. Showing more of a citrus edge, with lime splice and finger lime sweetness. Enticing teacake sponge flavors varietally laced with finely grated lemon zest. Already ready, yet no need to hurry - balanced and complete.

Wine SpectatorJuicy and vibrant, with pear and citrus flavors that show a green, leafy edge and traces of coarseness on the finish, where a whiff of smoke comes in. Drink now. 7,900 cases imported.
