The bouquet spells artful crafting of some very fine fruit. All the classic Margaret River, Chardonnay elements are here: fresh citrus, fig and melon, imbued with vanilla bean, minerals, brioche, nutmeal and nougat. The palate has acquired subtle caramel and nutmeal complexity and texture from time in fine French oak. A bright citrus acidity gives length, clarity and line to this fine and stylish wine.
A brooding deep garnet in colour with youthful and classic cabernet aromas of mint, violets, savoury dry herbs and briary hedgerow fruits, all spiced with a touch of mocha and toasted oak.
