Selected from the best barrels, from the best block of the best vineyard. Wild fermented in barrel. Take it away Mike B:
“It’s sourced from a single block from the Balmoral Vineyard, and best barrels of that single block are selected for this wine. Winemaker Tom Ward is looking for a tighter style, overall. It’s about 30% new oak.
Fresh cut stone fruit, flint, green apple, grapefruit, whiff of nougat and cashew. It’s a beautiful, come-hither chardonnay perfume here. Restrained, trim, just crisp, shows green apple and saline acidity with gentle slip of texture. Elegant, restrained, fine. This is very good chardonnay.” 94+ points, Mike Bennie, www.winefront.com.au
