[94 pts Stephen Tanzer] Pale gold. Gorgeous aromas of tangerine, white peach, nectarine, iodine, pine nut, jasmine and fennel, with a lush buttery overlay and hints of stone, flowers and lees; this could easily pass for high-end Meursault. Spicy, focused and vibrant, but also possesses serious weight and a chewy texture. The lush pear, peach and buttery anise flavors expand and deepen on the extremely long finish, with a late snap of minerality bringing things into sharp focus. Major-league, superconcentrated Australian chardonnay, one of the two best I tried this year along with the 2004 from Giaconda.
