"Again shows why the golden triangle of Margaret River (Leeuwin Estate, Devil's Lair and Voyager Estate) make such superb chardonnay; there is a taught intensity to the fabric of the wine, allowing the nectarine, grapefruit and melon to play at will with new French oak and come out on top. Superb balance and length."

"Australian chardonnay has come a long way over the last few years and as a result I would rather drink a nice chardonnay (or aged Hunter Semillon) these days over most other whites. This vintage is right up there with the outstanding 2002 in terms of quality. It has 40% new oak and 15% went through malolactic fermentation, and while those numbers only add up to 55%, there is no doubt that this wine is 100% delicious. Aromas of pear, white peach, pink grapefruit and fine spicy cashew nut oak with a light strike of matchsticky complexity. On the palate flavours of grapefruit, honeydew melon, cashew, oatmeal and a touch of nougat. Clean and fresh with penetrating grapefruit acidity and some lightly creamy malolactics adding texture and complexity. Finishes long and clean. An outstanding wine that needs a few more years to show its best."

"This is the perfect Margaret River chardonnay. It's full of that sun-kissed quality that the region's chardonnays are famous for, but it's also tight and refined, lingering long and lovingly on the tongue as it slides purely over it. Pear, nectarine, fennel, white flowers, cashew, grapefruit - it's all going on here, though it's all beautifully entwined. This is a top grade, regionally definitive, wine. Sunny, sure, significant.”
