Andrew Jefford

Tasting: Western Australia Chardonnay

Green-gold. Sweet, fresh, pure and lifted: wild grasses and tree blossom. Attractive scents. On the palate, this is deep, intense, searching, powerfully acidic. It’s backed by some creaminess, but the overall effect is searchingly citric; the aromatic profile led me to hope for something a little mellower.

Roger Jones

Tasting: Western Australia Chardonnay

Sweet and savoury on the nose, very cool on the fruits. Lovely, bright, zingy first taste then the stone fruit begins to explode. Clean fresh citrus finish but with some creamyness and ripeness left on the palate. A serious wine.

Alessandro Marchesan

Tasting: Western Australia Chardonnay

Buttery, oaky nose with mango and melon notes, crisp acidity, rich ripe citrus fruit on the palate and slightly waxy texture.
