The nose offers of white peach, fig and flint paired with delicate overtones of spice.
White peach carries through, teamed seamlessly with citrus notes and a creamy textured palate. Lively acid provides focus and length.
“At first this all about restraint, a seemingly gentle wine with soft acidity. Yet there is flavour with creamed honey, lemon curd with more savoury inputs. It sits right. Nothing is forced. It is long, pure and a pleasure to drink.”
Jane Faulkner, Wine Companion
“Bob McNamara is putting out excellent chardonnay from his property at Whorouly South.
Such excellent power to the fruit, such clear oak, such power to the finish. This is rich and essentially old school but it’s done so well, and the fruit itself is such good quality. If you enjoy flavoursome chardonnay, you will thoroughly enjoy this.”
