This Reserve Chardonnay has generous aromas of white peach, beautifully balanced by spicy oak with toasty undertones of vanilla and mocha. A rich and toasty palate shows pineapple and peach fruit with hints of cinnamon, which lingers to create a lovely wine with a long and persistent finish.
Wonderfully vibrant and generous, showing tangy passionfruit, juicy citrus fruit and supple honeydew melon that lead to a clean fresh finish.
The Three Graces represent three of the noblest white grape varieties: Marsanne, Viognier and Roussanne. The grapes were picked early to retain their freshness and fermented separately in stainless steel vats with a small portion of each variety both barrel and wild fermented followed by nine months' maturation on lees.
With The Three Graces Marsanne Viognier Roussanne I have been able to bring to life my passions: art, cricket and winemaking. With a nod to the works of Canova and Raphael this wine is dedicated to W.G. Grace, "The Champion", who had two brothers, E.M. and G.F., who also played cricket for England, including one test together against Australia in 1880.
This synergistic trio of Marsanne, Viognier and Roussanne seamlessly combines the beauty, charm and joy only achievable in a three-way blend. Stone fruit, honeysuckle, apricot and bright lemon zest are in abundance in this medium bodied wine with a subtle glossy feel. The Marsanne brings elegance and texture, the Viognier finesse and flavour and the Roussanne grace and structure.
High in natural acidity and bone dry, this wine is fresh and bright with intense smells of lime skin, citrus blossom, green apple, ripe guava and cinnamon spice. On the palate, there is crisp lime sorbet, stone fruit including apricot and classic mandarin, developing into rich lemon meringue. Wonderful racy minerality.
The nose of this wine displays an enticing mix of white stonefruits and sweet pineapple with an underlying hint of ginger. The palate is luscious and flavoursome, again nectarine and peach are prominent, with a twist of candied citrus rind. These sweet flavours evolve through the palate into more savoury flavours reminiscent of raw almonds and spice. A generous, textural wine with a surprising finesse on the finish.
The nose exhibits a whole array of characters from stone fruits and tropical notes through to nuttiness and an ever so delicate hint of Indian spice. The palate is robust! A luscious mix of pulpy fruit, green mango and papaya. These full flavours gently give way to honey blossom nuances and savoury pistachio notes which linger to a very long finish, adding refinement to the palate.
The wine displays lovely peach and creamy notes, with an oyster shell minerality that runs through the palate. Full flavoured and textured but with a vibrant acidity and a long lingering finish, this wine delivers a plethora of stone fruit, blossoms and savoury notes. The oak influence is minimal allowing the true flavours of the fruit to shine.
Melons, yellow peach, pear and stone fruits on the nose give away the style of this fresh easy drinking Chardonnay. The palate picks up from the nose with refreshing tropical fruits and more yellow peach and pears. The mid palate is beautifully creamy with good weight and the small amount of barrel fermentation adds a touch of integrated spice.
The nose is filled with passion fruit lemon and lime characters. With crisp citrus peach and nectarine flavours alongside honeysuckle and a hint of melon.
This is a lively, balanced wine that will drink well in its youth. Peaches and cream, lemon zest and green apple are apparent on the nose with a freshness that is expected of young Chardonnay. The restrained use of oak allows stone fruit and nutty characters to shine through on the palate, which is aided by the small portions of Viognier and Marsanne that have been blended into this wine.
Bright straw in colour with a youthful green tinge. Tropical fruit flavours burst from the glass with subtle citrus and herbaecous notes in support. The palate is fresh and lively with ripe tropical fruit flavours and zesty citrus acidity.
Ripe stone fruit and melon characters show here. The touch of Viognier brings an extra edge with lovely peach and sweet apricot notes. This, combined with the time the wine has had on lees and some malolactic fermentation produces a rounded, generous wine with a good acid balance.
Bright, bold aromas of white flowers and kaffir lime and a generous, almost fleshy mid-palate with distinct lemongrass and lime flavours. Almost dry, the palate is succulent and long with a tight, fine structure and exuberant sweeping acidity on the clean finish.
