95 Points, Sam Kim "A stylish offering; the inviting bouquet shows ripe stone fruit, nougat, roasted hazelnut and oatmeal characters on the nose, leading to a wonderfully expressed palate that delivers excellent weight and fleshy texture. It’s creamy and flowing to a splendid long finish filled with delectable flavours. At its best: now to 2027."

The ‘Wine Thief’ is the winemakers best friend - the traditional tool used for sampling wine directly from the barrel. Hand-picked grapes from our famed Rifleman’s Vineyard were whole bunch pressed then matured in the finest French oak. After many hours of barrel tasting (a tough job), a unique selection of wines from individual barrels are chosen to create this distinct blend. The resulting wine is a richly textured and opulent style of Chardonnay with power and grace.
