From the cool environs of Henty in south-western Victoria comes this high quality, linear and driving Chardonnay. It’s on the lean side but it is not underdone. Shows stuffing through the middle, particularly on the second day of tasting.
Smells of wheat germ/oatmeal, slightly sour green apples, lemons and lime and nuts. Tight and focused with an almond savouriness before it bursts through the spicy back-palate with bitter grapefruit. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but I reckon the quality is obvious. 93
