Our Price: $44.99 / bottle
(RRP $55.00)

Case: 12 bottles

The new Verve shows distinctive grapefruit & lemon on the nose alongside some mineral components. The palate almost gives you the illusion of richness due to the intensity of the fruit, then the crisp, dry finish kicks and lingers in an extended aftertaste. It drinks beautifully in its youth, as a fresh & vibrant Chardonnay. With Age this wine will develop further toffee and honey flavours.


  • The ripening season was mild & dry, excellent conditions for grapes destined for our Verve Chardonnay. When picked, they had incredibly intense fruit concentration combined with the steely acid backbone that completes this modern style.

  • 94 James Halliday - Single vineyard, from the northern end of the Peninsula, picked 2 weeks earlier than anywhere else in the region. Straw-coloured but fresh and lively. It sizzles through the palate. It tastes of citrus, white peach, wet stones and honeysuckle, oak essentially nowhere to be seen, at least in flavour terms. There's a subtle, sweet, lactose character to the aftertaste; an attractive parting shot.
