Andrew Jefford

Tasting: Western Australia Chardonnay

Pale gold. Delicate, shy aromatic profile, but classy: cooler citrus and early summer stonefruit given sensitive handling and creamy fermentation. The palate is much as the nose suggested: a classy but very restrained wine. Would a little more ripeness have brought it out further? Not convinced in this case.

Roger Jones

Tasting: Western Australia Chardonnay

Delicate on the palate with a fresh instant hit on the palate then a secondary richness evolves – custard tart, and some fresh acidity, lingers.

Alessandro Marchesan

Tasting: Western Australia Chardonnay

Elegant but restrained nose, light red citrus fruit character on the palate (mandarin/grapefruit), light bodied and crisp with med-long aftertaste.
