Kate Goodman is onto a good thing with this new Nikkal range. It looks right. It tastes right. It’s priced right. The bottle image doesn’t really do it justice but the label design is striking, in a good way.You’d call this chardonnay pristine. It’s not a fabulous wine but it’s well flavoured and textured, has enough complexity to keep you interested, embraces its variety with its grapefruit-and-white-peach flavour, and while kissed with spicy oak it’s just a passing flash. Nicely done.
91 points | Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au

Lemon curd, stone fruits and pears dominate the aromatics of this wine. The appealing nose is supported by generous fruit weight and intensity, and a fresh drive of natural juice acidity. The palate is not only refreshing, but also filled with textural elements derived from the time the wine spends in French oak barrels, contributing richness.

This chardonnay is a blend of fruit from two vineyards, Upper Ngumby in Yarra Glen and the cooler Morgan Vineyard in Seville. Harvested in February, tipped directly to the press and then fermented with some juice solids in seasoned French oak barrels. After fermentation the wine was left for a further six months prior to bottling in Spring.
