“Carries a lot of mighty good flavour that stays on the tongue and won't let go. Sunny and bright, yet deep and concentrated. Pure yellow peach, pear, Meyer lemon, spice and woodsmoke. Offers up a ripe citrus tang, stone fruits and light Asian fruit tropicals against a well-spiced cedarwood background - creamy soft across the mid-palate -- that simply doesn't stop as it works its way to a long finish. Juicy acidity aids the journey. Impressive - Rated: 95 Points

Jenni Port - Halliday Wine Companion

“Sourced from a vineyard next to Giaconda, a higher cropping site, conventional farmed, says Keppel Smith. A little struck match, grapefruit, stonefruit, andoatmeal richness, fine spicy oak, Japanese ginger. Juicy but tight, has somecreamy gloss and richness, but acidity gives it grapefruity tang and freshness,finishes quite long and spicy. A really good glass of Chardonnay here.  Satisfying. Pleasurable. Excellent. Rated: 94 Points

Gary Walsh - The Wine Front

The Frère Cadet is made from Beechworth chardonnay we are lucky enough to buy from some talented vignerons. It’s ready to go! A beautiful wine that is complex and elegant. Power and subtlety all interwoven into a perfect structure.

Intensity of aroma and flavour combined with great length and texture.

This is a wine that over delivers. It’s ready to drink and will continue to improve.

The Frère Cadet range of wines evolved to be more accessible in their youth. These wines are created with the same attention to detail that goes into our premium Savaterre label but are more giving when young. All grapes are handpicked and fermented by indigenous yeasts.

There is minimal interference. Nature takes its course. The wine is matured for 18 months in the best French oak before maturing in bottle prior to release.

I want you to enjoy this wine on occasions when Grand Cru would not be appropriate. It’s the wine you open when your friends drop in for a casual dinner or you collapse on the couch after a long day of work and stream an addictive TV series.
