Parterre Chardonnay 2022
Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, lemon curd, white peach, pistachio nut. Lively acidity with flinty river pebble dryness. Lime and lemon juice with an almond glossiness and a whisper of lactose. The wine sits nicely balanced and is quite juicy and salivating. The acidity and pH set this up as a long-term cellaring prospect which will develop a touch of richness as it matures. Should develop further complexity with 10-12 years of careful cellaring.
Awards and Reviews
"A vivacious style, that’s tightly wound, mineral-driven and really charming, almost thirst-quenching, in nature with flinty elements, spice, just-ripe stone fruits and almonds going on. There’s exceptional length, and it feels really precise and zesty at the same time. Beautifully drawn, and fine-boned."

"Subtle - crushed rocks, spice ripeness and acid line. Savoury complexing notes adds interest, lovely ride."
- Halliday Challenge, 95 pts
"Delicate aroma of peach skin, palate offers so much more. Rich sweet ripe tropical stone fruit, savoury minerals and baking spice. Well balanced with good body and crisp freshness. Pink grapefruit and salty lime appear at the succulent lengthy finish."
