Tasting Notes

colour

Pale colour with flecks of green. 

aroma

The nose is ethereal and lemon waxy. Framed by notes of white blossom and hints of chipped shell and complex minerality.

palate

A revelry of fresh grapefruit and citrus zest is framed by aromas of cashew nut, toasted oak and baking spice. Powerful yet understated – a wine with a long future.

Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion 2022

Hand-picked fruit from the Tasman Peninsula, Coal River and Tamar Valleys. Fermented on full solids and matured 10 months in 35% new French oak hogsheads. Launching Tasmania's most exciting new premium label, the Fogarty Group sure has hit the ground running. This is pitch-perfect chardonnay that embraces the generosity of a warm season and frames it intricately in crystalline acidity, top-class oak and just the right whif of struck-flint reduction. Masterfully assembled and a joy to taste for the first time.

Ray Jordan, The West Australian

The fruit is sourced from the Tasmar Valley, Coal River Valley and the Tasman Peninsula. This shows the tremendous potential for Tasmanian chardonnay. It has a slightly savoury and lightly toasty aroma with traces of creamy stone fruit and honeysuckle. Throw in some lifted touches of grapefruit and lemon zest with the subtle intrusion of roasted cashew and you get some idea of its complexity. The palate is immensely powerful yet delivers with a degree of restraint and poise. Traces of cumquat and lemon peel (Best drinking: Now to 2031).

Gary Walsh, The Wine Front 2022

Hand-picked fruit from the Tasman Peninsula, Coal River and Tamar Valleys. A bit of struck match, a lime/lemon margarita thing happening here, cinnamon oak, and a honey/floral perfume. It’s flinty and tight, lemon and lemon zest, a little white peach and nougat gloss and sweetness, but spicy and gently dusty, with a slight grainy wood tannin feel, and a tangy and bright finish of excellent length, some umami/chicken stock flavours in the aftertaste. Excellent.
