    November 20, 2018 - Fully mature stone and tropical fruit with butterscotch and gingerbread. Very good concentration. Clearly ripe with sweet character, but able to maintain a real sense of balance, even if not restraint. Nose slightly more advanced than palate, with floral flourishes.

    April 24, 2017 - Similar notes to the previous poster. Over the top notes of banana chips and a syrupy cloying texture. Might have been good as a small dessert glass wine, but not as a main course companion.

    September 4, 2016 - Quick notes. Over the top flavors of tropical fruit; but with age it has developed a syrupy profile and strong brown sugar notes. Ends with dark citrus and a spicy finish. Disappointing.

    February 19, 2016 - Bright gold in color. 14.6% ABV. Pretty nose of lemon, apple and butterscotch. Medium body with bright acidity. Pure and precise. Creme brulee, pear, ginger and honeysuckle on the palate. Gorgeous Chardonnay and a really impressive first effort from the Kosta Browne team. Aging beautifully. Drink over the next year or so.

    June 29, 2015 - Excellent. The oak has integrated, leaving flavors of honeyed pears, with candied citrus tones. The finish is loaded with a rich honey flavor.
