"Sat out on the verandah, kicked off the moss, poured a glass of chardonnay, pre-dinner light, September, fading.
In a heartbeat. I would drink this. And buy this.
It’s a wine of understated flavour, high texture, satisfaction and finesse.
It builds as it progresses through the palate.
Like a train, surging. It’s all stone fruit and nut, a hint of vanilla, cool tones but flesh.
You can tell it’s been in oak, it has that woody afterwards.
That woody afterwards; I had to type it again. Beechworth is a pretty harsh place.
Hot, cold and rocky. Vines don’t thrive there, they resist.
No wonder Kelly made a stand there. Upright power; that’s what this wine has."
