At release, straw with a green tinge to the hue.
The wine has a fresh, lifted aromas of white peach and subtle cashew nut aromas from the oak adding complexity to the fruit characters.
The palate has a rich texture whilst still retaining a slightly minerally acid backbone, giving it an overall elegance. The mid palate is medium-bodied with a touch of creaminess from the lees maturation and battonage. Flavours of white peach, cream and cashews are evident along with cleansing citrus at the finish. The wine has wonderful length from the use of quality French oak.
Designed to drink superbly well upon release, it will also age gracefully with careful cellaring to 2015, possibly longer.

James Halliday, Wine Companion 2011, September 2010
Exceptional green colour; has equally exceptional varietal aromas and flavours for a region that seldom allows chardonnay to express itself with the intensity and flair of this impeccably balanced wine.
