AWARDS & REVIEWS - CHARDONNAY
 

2009 Chardonnay:

94 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2012 Edition
"Glowing straw-green; a high-quality wine, with the intensity and focus needed to provide the length and drive of the palate; the flavours are perfectly pitched between opulence and austerity; barrel fermentation a process, perfectly balanced citrus, stone fruit and mineral flavours the outcome. To 2020"

93 Pts - Ray Jordan's WA Guide to Wine 2011
"Immensely powerful Chardonnay. The nose shows a stunning mix of stonefruit, citrus and slightly toasty oak while the palate has an almost tangy zip to it with toasty oak, lime and rich stonefruit held in a precise and controlled manner to a long finish."

Bronze Medal - 2010 Margaret River Wine Show

2007 Reserve Chardonnay:

Gold Medal - 2009 Australian Small Winemakers Show

Gold Medal - 2008 Royal Perth Wine Show

94 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2010 Edition
"An intense, yet restrained wine that achieves complexity on both bouquet and palate; has very good length to the grapefruit and white peach fruit".

2007 Unwooded Chardonnay:

Silver Medal - 2007 Royal Adelaide Wine Show

91 Pts - Affairs of the Vine, Chardonnay Shootout; 2007 Wine Challenge, California, USA
"This is a beautiful wine...fun with a racy minerality. The lemongrass notes over bright peach aromas seamlessly move onto the palate with enduring fruit through the persistent finish. Lemon and lime aromatics with pear and some pineapple on the palate. Nice acid, all gave it high marks."

88 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2009 Edition
"Entirely fruit driven, with sweet, ripe nectarine and peach fruit; crowd pleaser."

2006 Reserve Chardonnay:

2009 Sydney International Wine Competition (Judged with food):
Reserve Champions Trophy
- Runner Up Best Wine of Competition
Perpetual Trophy for 'Best Table White' of Competition
Perpetual Trophy for 'Best Fuller Bodied Dry White Wine' of Competition
Top 100 Blue-Gold Medal

Trophy and Gold Medal for 'Best Dry White' - 2008 Sheraton WA Wine Awards

Gold Medal - 2008 Perth Royal Wine Show

Silver Medal - 2008 Rutherglen Wine Show

Silver Medal - 2008 Murrumbateman Cool Climate Wine Show

95 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2009 Edition
"Notable for its purity and line; all of the focus on nectarine and melon fruit; oak plays a pure support role. To 2014."


2005 Reserve Chardonnay:

92 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2009 Edition
"Striking pale green; still very fresh and tight with flavours in a grapefruit and stonefruit spectrum. To 2015".

Finalist for '2008 Wine of the Year' - 2008 Winestate Magazine

Silver Medal - 2007 Australian Small Winemakers Show

Silver Medal - 2007 Margaret River Wine Show

91 Pts - Affairs of the Vine, Chardonnay Shootout; 2007 Wine Challenge, California, USA
"Nice colour with rich tropical fruit and buttery notes in the glass. In the mouth, this is a nice Chardonnay; buttery and rich. A big Chardonnay that is toasty and then some. Apple and pear fruit throughout balanced by the nice acid; Creamy and buttery with lots of toasty oak elements."

2003 Reserve Chardonnay:

92 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2005 Edition
"A complex amalgam of barrel ferment and malolactic inputs to a creamy palate with nice melon fruit; good balance and length; stylish regional example."

Silver Medal & Top 6 Wine - 2005 WA Scoop Magazine
"This wine comes from a stable that is receiving serious wine show circuit recognition. Fastidious fruit selection, expert barrel handling and an uncompromising commitment to quality have produced a great retro-style Chardonnay. No doubt the premium oak feel did not come cheaply. Beautiful toasty developed characters, balanced by subtle malo, classic melons and tropical fruit introduce this new member of the premium Chardonnay club."
               

2001 Chardonnay:

Gold Medal and 'Top 15 Chardonnay' - Spring 2007 Selector Magazine
"It has aged attractively and shows that Chardonnay can be made to last. Well balanced, it has a rich, round palate with tropical nectar flavours along with butterscotch and soft vanillin oak." (536 wines tasted; 60 regions; 300+ producers)
