|SILVER - 2023 International Cool Climate Wine Show
"Brings all the summery charm of well-ripened chardonnay to the glass, bursting in stone fruits, citrus and attractive leesy almond meal. French oak is noted, but its presence enhances the overall flavour profile with an additional layer of light toastiness. Buttery and creamy across the tongue. Good drinking at a smart price." Jeni Port, Halliday Wine Companion website
