Reserve Bin A Chardonnay has evolved into a wine that is now a distinctive, single-region style in its own right, with a contemporary and expressive Adelaide Hills chardonnay persona. Fruit is hand-picked into small bins and then whole-bunch pressed. A portion of the juice is incrementally filled to barrel directly from the press and allowed to undergo a natural fermentation, sans inoculation. Every new and seasoned French oak barrique is its own unique 225-litre ferment. Enhanced mouthfeel and complexity is achieved by fermenting and maturing on solids with sensitive, intermittent yeast lees stirring. 100% malolactic fermentation (all natural).

A cooler vintage for the Adelaide Hills and one that has delivered much in the way of high-quality chardonnay. This has a very striking nose of peaches, nectarines, grapefruit pith and beeswax with nicely played, hazelnut-flavored oak. The reduction is appealingly flinty and delivers direct complexity. The palate is briny with succulent peach, nectarine and biscuit flavors and an array of citrus at its core. There's a long, clear burst of fine, powerful fruit at the finish. An excellent vintage for this wine. Drink or hold. 97pts James Suckling
