Bright, light straw with green tints.
Nose
Intense grapefruit and Nashi pear. Hazelnut cream overlayered with a vanillian oak spice.
Palate
Mouthfilling and Juicy. A rich creamy middle showing peach and pear fruit. Incredible power and length, both textual and seductive. It will continue to gain in complexity as it gently evolves in the years to come.

Light straw colour, young for its age, with a straw and slightly smoky oak-driven bouquet, the palate soft and fleshy with stone fruit flavours and a lick of honey. A hint of Weetbix. It’s very fresh and bright, young and vital, with a clean, dry finish. Good concentration. It should reward a little more cellar-time, but is excellent now.

This is both impressive and refined. It’s not always easy to strike such a balance. A Chardonnay that drives long and pure, yet has substance. Complex sulphides and leesy characters, flinty, balanced oak, so detailed and moreish it demands you come back for another taste. And you do. It’s seamless.

An elegant and beautiful, modern chardonnay, with a line of fine acidity channelling the wine through the palate. Admirable complexity, which is subtle and respectful. The lemony and nutty flavours are long and satisfying. This is an outstanding wine and exceptional value. Highly recommended.
