Appearance: bright, medium, lemon-green core -> water white rim

Nose: clean, medium intensity aromas of citrus (lime), mineral, star fruit and hint of vanilla

Palate: medium+ acidity; medium intensity flavors that match the aromas; medium length but has slight bitterness on the finish (phenolic).  The flavors are complex and layered.

Quality: This is a very good example of chardonnay from the Margaret River region of Australia.  The acidity and lime notes are strongly associated with this region.  If you enjoy lime and chardonnay, you really should try this chardonnay.
