Review

Light, bright yellow colour, youthful and sparkling fresh; the bouquet has a dominant note of almond meal as well as toasted cashew and walnut, with malt and milk-chocolate additions. Grapefruit comes to the fore the longer the wine is in the glass. The palate is soft and rounded, full and rich in the mouth, with lemon/citrus filling in the back-palate and aftertaste, leaving a refreshing and vital after-impression. Delicious and appetising, intense and long. There is concentration and complexity in spadefuls. Prodigious palate length, too. Truly an exciting chardonnay.

Review

Chardonnay clones I10V1 and P58 pressed to seasoned large-format French oak, fermented wild, 10 months élevage on lees. Flush with stone and citrus fruits, sheathed in soft spice along with hints of almond blossom, crushed stone, a whiff of struck flint and a touch of oyster shell. Excellent tension and clarity with a tautly stretched canvas of fruit, crystalline acidity and a softly spiced exit showing ample power, drive and grace.

Tasting Profile

Nose
Subtle oak spice and sea smoke add lingering complexity.
Palate
Under a focused core of ripe stone fruit there lies a pristine acid structure delivering richness and tension across the palate. Layers of grilled hazelnut, salted lime and ripe melon deliver exceptional drinkability.
