“A hint of oak on the nose but mostly pure citrus fruit. Tightly wound and zesty with depth and a creamy finish. Smart Chardonnay showing the potential of the Great Southern subregion of Porongurup. (JH). 12.5% alc. Drink now-2028.“ Jancis Robinson 17 points
Winemaker Guy Lyons aims to create wines which reflect his passion for high quality, cool climate fruit grown in Porongurup, Western Australia. The vines were planted in 1985 and are dry grown on ancient lateritic gravels on the family farm. The Riesling is aged on lees in concrete eggs for up to 6 months, giving it a textural, creamy mouthfeel. The Chardonnay is matured in oak for 12 months before further ageing in bottle. These small batch wines showcase the very best this Great Southern region has to offer, where wines are unfined and unfiltered to show expression of place.
What a wine - truffles, honey, cooked peaches and a lovely long, semi sweet palate. A fabulous example of a sweeter Vouvray. Wine available Mid May 2018. Contains Sulphites
Grenache comes to the fore, a super balance of fruit and spice. Fennel comes out with jammy red berries and spice. A lovely Chateauneuf du Pape from this great producer....
"Oyster shells, a little smoke and then lemon coming out. A nice, well balanced palate, good acidity, easy and with a hint of baked apple on the finish. Good"
