This is a Chardonnay for those who truly appreciate how this wine can show off such a ripe, rich, honeyed character, with full body and textural layers, while at the same time putting forth tropical fruits like pineapple, melon and peach. Aged in French oak for five months, it wraps these qualities within a slight buttery mouthfeel – there, but not overbearing. A fine wine with chicken, pork or pasta with cream sauce, mild curries, and grilled or seared lobster and scallops.

|Julian Park rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:
This estate Chardonnay underwent full malolactic fermentation and five months in French oak to arrive at a wine showing deep golden colour and the richness of a Santa Barbara Chardonnay. The wine has excellent fruit notes, white peach, pineapple and melon and a buttery richness that is not overpowered by the oak.
