This is a gorgeous, opulent, barrel-fermented Chardonnay that punches well above its price—it flirts with 5 stars, pick up a case. Baking spice, incense and ripe apple aromas provide entry to a generously textured, medium-full bodied, beautifully balanced flow of ripe, juicy pear, white nectarine with a delightful streak of lemon and grapefruit tang. The finish lingers and the price-quality balance tips well in your favour. (Vic Harradine)
