Hand-picked, wild fermentation and 100% mlf in French barriques (40% new). Easy to see how it swept all before it at the Sydney Wine Show '18, Superb gravitas, chiselled like a marble Roman statue. Amazing poise and length, acidity the key to the kingdom. 12.5% alc, screwcap 98 points, drink to 2027.
Andrew Caillard MW
Pale colour. Highly evocative wine with intense grapefruit, white apricot flinty aromas with grilled nut complexity. Generous and creamy with grapefruit, apricot, white peach stone fruit flavours, light marzipan, flinty notes and underlying savoury oak complexity; all intertwined with fine lacy textures, crisp acidity and superb mineral length. This is absolutely at the cutting edge of Australian Chardonnay. An exquisite balance of fruit definition, texture and mouthwatering freshness. Delicious wine. Move over Puligny. 98 points Drink Now – 2030.
