“Some pretty nifty winemaking decisions have been taken including the time to pick a wild ferment, half in new French Oak (other half in tank), both components undergoing mlf, this is an elegant wine with grapefruit to the fore, but leaving space for a white peach contribution.” James Halliday, 94 points

The Marquise Chardonnay 2012 - 1 bottle
Straw yellow and green in colour with thick legs. Damp wood, lime & grassy on the nose. Minerally oak with lemon and lime. Missing a little on the mid-palette unfortunately but finishes crisp and dry. Rated the 2012 Vintage.
Lemon and fresh floral overtones with a hint of oak my kind of Chardonnay. Rated the 2012 Vintage.
A bright light yellow in colour with tropical and grapefruit enhanced by new French oak. A little sweetness with a lingering acid finish. Cellar 2020 have to leave this. Rated the 2012 Vintage.
This is what modern cool climate Chardy is all about - balance and length of flavour. Rated the 2010 Vintage.
