This gem of a Chardonnay is a perfect example of the many good quality, inexpensive wines available from this region. The use of malolactic fermentation and three months of aging in French oak results in a soft, balanced Chardonnay with a nose of peaches and cream, and rich, long flavors of pear and melon, leaving with a clean, refreshing finish. Youthful and enticing, drink now!

Named after Australia's most famous and beautiful gemstone, this wine is dry yet wonderfully flavored, displaying attractive peach-like aromas and balanced oak character.

The bouquet has lovely aromas of peach, melon and cream, while the palate is rich and long with varietal Chardonnay fruit. The wonderful texture of this wine is complexed by the small portion of malolactic fermentation, and the finish is long and dry.

A heavyweight wine, loaded with cooked pear and apple flavors and accented by mint and cream. Like a real-life heavyweight, it's a bit ponderous in this crowd, albeit packed with flavor.

Well balanced in an off-dry style, this pleasing Chardonnay has flavors of fresh pineapple and red apple. It's a touch floral and sweet, this it finishes clean, a refreshing balance for barbecued chicken.

Ripe and juicy, nicely packed with pineapple and pear fruit.

Youthful and fresh, offering appealing pear, apricot and spice aromas and flavors, but the finish is a little raw. May be best after 1993.
