2004 The Colonial Estate Chardonnay Exodus Piccadilly Valley/Adelaide Hills
Producer: The Colonial Estate
Style: White Wine
Grape Type: Chardonnay
Region: Barossa Valley
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2005
($100) Medium gold. Exotic peach, apricot, honeyed apple, poached pear, fennel and mineral scents, with spicy, leesy, nutty and sulfidey aromas suggestive of Meursault. Rich and thick, with buttery ripe apple, hazelnut, brioche and acacia honey flavors that do not come at the expense of nerve and focus. Round and vigorous on the finish, with long, spicy, mineral-tinged orchard fruit notes. An impressively concentrated, exotically complex effort.
