2017 Wine Thief Chardonnay

Enticing brioche, hazelnut and lemon aromas with ripe grapefruit zest and mineral notes in the background. The palate has sweet fruits of quince, grapefruit and creamy lemon curd. The wine is richly textured it builds in the mouth and shows lovely balance of fruit and oak. There is a citrus freshness and tight minerality that leaves an intense finish and long-lasting crème brûlée flavours.

Michael Coopers Buyers Guide 4.5 Stars

95 Points. Grapes from the acclaimed Rifleman’s vineyard were hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed and matured in French oak. It’s a slightly lighter style than Rifleman’s Chardonnay with similar purity and flavour profile. An attractive wine with sensitive winemaking influence adding nutty oak, bready yeast lees and a suggestion of mineral and struck flint character.
