On the nose it is initially subtle and nuanced. With some air the wine begins to reveal itself, beginning with some hazelnuts, gun flint, nougat and exotic white flower interlinked with citrus infused spice, saline and minerality.

Precise, powerful, complex and distinctly Savaterre.

After time the pedigree of this wine starts to really shine. It’s powerful and confident.

The palate is intensely concentrated with a frame of ripe, fine acidity. Flavours of pear, pink grapefruit, white peach, praline and toasted hazelnuts are wrapped in the core of fine acidity. Saline oyster shell and mineral texture persist through the long finish.

Our notes

The 2018 Chardonnay soars from the glass with classy high-quality French oak [18 months] and subtle matchstick sulphide notes a feature, the oak wrapping around a core of beautiful pure fleshy white peach, fresh pear and nectarine varietal fruit infused with attractive honeycomb, grilled almond and savoury oatmeal/leesy nuances.

It’s a powerful Beechworth chardonnay yet detailed, vibrant and alive with citrusy acids and gunflint notes keeping the weighty winemaking input on its tiptoes. It really feels beautiful to drink now but will live for at least a decade. Awesome Chardonnay…!  CR

It’s tight and structured, but has generosity of flavour and sizzled hazelnut butter warmth, allied to juicy lime and stonefruit flavours. Peppermint and white flowers. Struck match, a coolness of mint and fennel, cashew, flinty texture, and a very long and powerful finish, and I’m thinking grilled lime, cinnamon spice and fresh herbs. It’s a stellar release, as far as I’m concerned. Epic. Rated : 97 Points Tasted : Jul20 Alcohol : 13.5% Closure : Screwcap Drink : 2020 - 2026+

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
