Description

“An impeccable vintage defined by an attenuated cool growing season, this compelling wine is inspired by the great whites of the Jura region, inflected with the nutty influence of ‘voile', or the surface yeast known as flor. Whole-bunch pressed to old French wood, the barrels were left on ullage and moved to a well ventilated area to encourage the yeast's growth. They remained there for a whopping three-years, sans any additions. The result is quite possibly the most exciting white wine in the country, reeling off top notes of dried hay, chamomile and cheese cloth; bottom notes of quince and dried fruits. A long weave of viscosity, unctuousness and freshness all at once. Riveting!” 97 points, Ned Goodwin, winecompanion.com.au

“This was the second vintage of this wine; there was none in 2014. Picked at 13% and 15.4% and given more than three years under flor. They bottle on taste. Not released yet...    Deep gold. Nutty and not too demanding. Exciting wine. Notably richer and riper than the 2013.” 17 points, Jancis Robinson
