Williams' Block Chardonnay 2022


Light straw in colour with heady, delicate aromatics of white flowers and oyster shell leading the way, followed by richer yuzu citrus and creamy, toasty oak filling out the nose.

Upfront flinty, wet stone and subtle cardamon spice flavours are apparent, and a juicy but fine acid gives the wine a firm backbone and draws you through the palate. Lime sherbet, white peach, and toasty, almost savoury oak, fill out the palate and continue to linger long after the wine has gone.

Awards & Reviews:

International Wines & Spirit Competition - Silver Medal

"Elegant aromas of pithy pomelo, white grapefruit, and nectarine. The palate boasts flavours of peaches, wild crab apple blossom, and pineapple. Bright acidity and a grainy texture. Harmonious and accomplished."  IWSC Judges, June 2024

THE WINE PILOT - Shanteh Wale - 96 points

"Wow she is striking! Pretty white florals and a delicate lace of white peach sorbet and rainier cherries. Shaved young ginger, crushed macadamia and glittering sandstone. There is almost a soft oriental note of frankincense and sage. Pineapple hull and lemon balm. A real slipperiness to the long line of acidity, unmarred by heavy oak use. The wine is light on its feet, a bit like tinkerbell but magical in its fruit purity. A chardonnay that makes you feel optimistic and hopeful. Drink now and will cellar well for the next 4-6 years. A wonderful match for angel hair pasta and diamond shell clams." (June 2024)
