5 Stanley Street
A bright fragrance of Clementine orange, fresh limes and a honeyed floral sweetness mingle with rich almond butter and flinty, mealy savouriness reminiscent of freshly mown meadow hay. The palate is smooth and textural with lemon and grapefruit top notes wound into a warm marmalade brioche.

Review by Raymond Chan
"Full straw-yellow colour with some depth and light golden hues. The bouquet is full and voluminous with complex flinty lees and reductive aromas featuring, underlined by soft citrus and stonefruit notes, nuts and smoke. The nose grows in intensity and breadth in the glass. Full-bodied, the flavours are stylishly restrained, building in richness, weight and texture. An array of citrus and stonefruit flavours are intermixed with nuts, minerals, flint and smoke. The mouthfeel possesses lusciousness and creaminess, balanced by discreet acidity and guided by a fine textural line and understated power, to a very long and sustained, fulsome finish. This is a complex-flavoured, fine-textured Chardonnay that builds in richness and power."
