2018 'Estate' Chardonnay

2018 'Estate' Chardonnay
Biodynamic ∙ Organic ∙ Vegan

This wine has all the elements of a great Chardonnay present – fruit, oak, acid, creamy texture & complexity, but no element overpowers the other. A wonderful wine to enjoy now, or watch it grow and develop over the years.


Awards & Reviews

Top Gold Medal – Tasmanian Wine Show 2020

Mike Bennie: "There are a bunch of different strata of chardonnay at SL these days but I think this is what could be called ‘Estate’. Biodynamic farmed. Fresh as you like. What a lovely, delicious, moreish thing this is. This is the chardonnay you jam into people’s faces and say ‘hey, this is what quality wine is’. It oozes charm, sleek and slick in texture, fresh fruit seasoned appropriately with spice, lemon curd, fresh stone fruit, minerally licks like pumice and talc, zingy acidity, all even, all matched, seamless and flowing and so darn good. Just beautiful."

95pts – Mike Bennie, published 23 July 2020 (The Wine Front)

A wine with strong Tasmanian credentials including an inner energy, steely reserve and powerful acidity. That's the groundwork for a long-lived chardonnay, right there. Immediately reserved and still youthful with grapefruit pith, lemon curd, cut pear, fleshy mango. Good, strong backbone in play with a linear line of citrus infusion. A waiting game kind of wine, be patient.
