Juicy, ripe and yet elegant and fineFrom a cooler vintage, has rich ripe apple and grilled pineapple characters, overlain with creamy richness and hazelnut notes. I like the integration of oak, held together by a good backbone of acid, drank it with some grilled kingfish, delicious!
James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au
Vintage 2017 - “Predominantly from the estate vineyard, hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, barrel-fermented in French barriques (one-third new), part wild, part cultured, yeast-fermented, matured for 9 months with weekly battonage. Gleaming straw-green; a super-elegant, yet extremely complex, wine, with pink grapefruit to the fore, balanced in both texture and flavour by buttery brioche.”
