“This is lean and long in style but it’s appeal, regardless, is immediate. Hay, flint, white peach and apple flavours are married seamlessly to cedar-spice and sweet-roasted nuts, the finish adding a subtle steeliness. It’s good now but the fact that it will improve given time seems pretty obvious.”
- 93+ points. Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

"Chardonnay (Penfolds clone) sourced from the Tasman Peninsula. Hand picked and whole-bunch pressed with some oxidative handling before barrel fermentation with wild yeast; 10 months in barrel. Light straw in hue with notes of white peach, Meyer lemon, ginger cake, lightly spiced French oak, white flowers and crushed stone. Fragrant and pure fruited in the mouth with bright acidity and a lovely textural pithiness on the finish."
- 92 points. Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion

Grown on the Tasman Peninsula on one of Tasmania’s coolest and latest ripening coastal vineyard sites with clay lime soil over dolerite and a northerly aspect. Penfolds clone chardonnay was handpicked, whole bunch pressed and transferred to barrel for slow fermentation with partial wild malolactic fermentation. Matured on lees for 10 months. Bottled unfined with minimal sulphur additions.
