Andrew Jefford

Tasting: Western Australia Chardonnay

Pale green gold. Lots of peach on the scents of this wine; oak almost entirely hidden at this stage, laudably. Vivid, lively, vinous and long: a classic Chardonnay, though not as yet an intensely expressive one.

Roger Jones

Tasting: Western Australia Chardonnay

Intense on first palate then evolves with multi-layered fruit and textures, evolves into a very delicate clean rippling wine with a long lingering stone fruit finish with hints of pink grapefruit.

Alessandro Marchesan

Tasting: Western Australia Chardonnay

Elegant and complex but quite high in alcohol and short.
