Palladian Chardonnay 2017

Palladian Chardonnay 2017

Over twenty years we have learnt exactly which vineyard rows produce the finest grapes, and these are hand picked for the Palladian wines from our single vineyard site.  Minimal interventionist winemaking - gentle movement of fruit with the added assistance of time in larger puncheon barrels.  The resulting wines are thoughful, persuasive and aspirational with only a very limited quantity of 3 barrels made.  

It has incredibly pure, intense and long palate, grapefruit and white peach locked into an eternal embrace.
James Halliday, 98/100, The Weekend Australian 2019

A beautiful, very refined and complex wine. The bouquet shows low-level sulfides, smoky oak aromas and rich fruit. The palate is delicate, tight and fine, with terrific intensity, line and length. A top chardonnay.
Huon Hooke, 97/ 100, The Real Review 2018

Spicy biscuit oak, zesty lime and grapefruit, kaffir lime leaf, touch of nougat, whisper of struck match. Medium-bodied, intense fruit backed with tasteful spicy oak, gently chalky texture, a bit of sunshine pineapple and vanilla on a long crisp finish. Savoury elements in play, but not thick with winemaker influence, more into purity here. A spicy little unit. Shy as a youngster, and more open coming back to it having been open for a day.
95+ points, Gary Walsh, Winefront
