Tasting Notes:
rated: August 1, 2006 , Stephen Tanzer
91 points "Bright yellow. Mineral-driven citrus, pear and smoked meat aromas, with strong leesy, buttery nuances; this hardly smells New World, unless you're talking $60+ renditions. Silky in texture and strikingly fresh, with excellent purity to the complex flavors of pear, quince, iodine, white truffle and clove. Blind, I'd be smack in the middle of Chassagne-Montrachet. Easily the best-value chardonnay I've tasted this year, with the clarity and depth to squash plenty of wines that cost more per bottle than a case of this-and I say that as a white Burgundy fool."

90 points "The 2005 Chardonnay Adelaide Hills ratchets up the level of quality even higher, coming across like a top-notch Chablis. Subtle notions of honeyed melon and tropical fruit as well as good acidity and surprising depth, length, and richness (from extract, not sugar) suggest it will drink well for several years." Best 2006-2009
