98 Points – James Halliday Top 100 2017 – Best 20 Whites Over $20

'The soaring intensity and precision of the wine obliterates any comment about the oak. It is one of those uncommon chardonnays that demands you give it time, the more the merrier. Grapefruit is the masthead, but it gathers around it a suite of flavours that keep its energy and drive on track.' James Halliday

This Single Block Chardonnay has been produced using hand-picked fruit from the Watershed Estate vineyard in Margaret River.

The wine exhibits intense aromas of citrus and stone fruit accompanied with notes of spice and roasted cashew nuts. On the palate, the dense creamy texture is complemented by grapefruit and mineral notes, followed by a long nutty finish.

Terroir, place, selection. Parcels of fruit and length and flavour concentration, complexity and intensity achieved through carefully selected hand picked fruit. These wines are finely crafted with extended maturation and fermentation in new and one year old French Oak barrels to deliver wines of outstanding quality.
