97 points! Medium-depth yellow colour leads into a shyly reserved bouquet which speaks of buttery shortbread, dried citrus peels and butterscotch which is more evident on the palate, where the wine is very intense and even quite powerful, with a long-lasting carry loaded with penetrating lemon/grapefruit flavours. The aftertaste is refreshing and full of energy. A delicious and very impressive chardonnay.

96 points! Grown on 12 rows of chardonnay planted at Bannockburn near Geelong in the mid 1970s.
Terrifically good. Flavour and line, character and freshness. Yellow stonefruit and cedar, pine/mint and white flowers, a subtle smokiness. The thing that really impresses is the way texture is folded through and, moreso, the way it establishes its power from the outset but still manages to kick into another, more powerful gear through the finish. This is a truly gorgeous wine.
