Description

From a propitiously situated vineyard at 500m, this plays a ‘cool handed Luke’ of reductive gun flint tension, a faint whiff of apricot and nectarine, alongside a rivet of creamed cashew and nougat. Tight and febrile of energy, yet far from severe. This is a streamlined Chardonnay of the finest pedigree. 96 Points - Ned Goodwin, James Halliday Wine Companion

This single-vineyard bottling, from a super cool site, has a very tight-wound feel. The nose is really wound into reductive territory with flinty grapefruit and nectarine aromas, layered with almonds and oak spice. The palate has a very sleek, elegant feel and runs so, so long with such fresh white peaches and pithy lemons. Spiced-almond finish. Superb chardonnay here.  97 points - Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com
