- Since European settlement in the 1840's, olive trees have thrived in McLaren Vale. They are alongside roads, in gardens and occasionally, in the middle of our Chardonnay vineyards blocking our harvester! A lovely modern style of Chardonnay, showing great balance between crisp, savoury fruit and subtle integrated oak. The bouquet displays an attractive array of nectarine, Granny Smith, vanilla, spice and mildly roasted nuts. The palate has an initial hit of creaminess, quite strong in stone fruit and white flowers. Mid palate reverts to a more streamline shape as seaspray and nutty nuances emerge. Finally, the finish is long and dry, with just a whisper of those vanillan notes first spotted on the nose. Quite refined in youth, this wine will gently cede to more generosity and juiciness with a year or two of age.
