Shimmeringly lithe, concentrated yet with a crystalline purity... it’s like drinking some of the finest St Aubin or Puligny. It's a wine that will age beautifully for a decade in your cellar, but will perform wonders on your palate if you're drinking it now. With roast turbot or some garlic-buttered shellfish - magical.
This level of achievement does not happen by accident. Tom is a true winemaker's winemaker, an uber-geek known for his forensic attention to detail - for his single-vineyard Yabby Lake bottlings, this means harvesting and vinifying different chardonnay clones, block by block, to give him the finest shades with which to compose his precise, thousand-layered wines.
FROM THE PRESS
“Various clones from different blocks, hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, cloudy juice into French puncheons (20% new), matured for 11 months. This has elegance as well as generous proportions, every input of fruit and oak made to measure.”James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion) 96/100
