This wine reflects the best of Tasmania. A parcel of pristine fruit was hand-selected to create this milestone Chardonnay with classic grapefruit, lemon curd and white peaches on the palate.
The Milestone 140 Tasmanian Chardonnay marks Ricky's milestone innings of 140 not out in the 2003 World Cup Final in Johannesburg against India.
In the most complete World Cup final team performance ever, Ricky Ponting was the standout for Australia. Coming in with the platform laid at 1-105 after 14 overs, Ponting was rock-solid in bringing up his half-century off 74 balls. From there, Ponting flicked the switch. It took just 29 more balls to bring up a treasured ICC Cricket World Cup final century. He went on to smash eight sixes on his way to an unbeaten 140 off 121 balls. Australia ended on 2-359 and a third ICC Cricket World Cup title was within grasping distance.
''My 140 not out in the 2003 World Cup Final was a true milestone moment in my career. Importantly, it contributed to an amazing team effort in our 17th consecutive ODI win and helped the team on its way to winning three World Cups."- Ricky Ponting
94/100 Wine Orbit Sam Kim
“Beautifully styled and elegantly complex on the nose with white flesh stone fruit, vanilla, lemon peel, savoury pastry, and roasted nut aromas. The palate is equally attractive with excellent weight and fine focus, combined with beautifully infused acidity, finishing wonderfully long and richly textured.”
