Our truly cool climate ensures an sublime, yet complex expression of Chardonnay that speaks with purity of time and place.

Bouquet A complex nose of bakers spice and white florals, struck match and sea spray salinity. Notes of lemon curd, preserved lime and fresh fig form a nose that is rich yet delicate. Palate Powerfully elegant citrus driven palate, with grapefruit leading the charge. Seamless structure and mineral acidity provide elegant undercarriage and length to the immediately satisfying front and mid palate. Cellaring Drinking very well now, rewards await cellaring over the next five to ten years.
  • Alcohol: 13.6%
  • Closure: Screw cap
  • Maturation: 18 months in 100% French oak (37% new)
How is this drinking now? A warmer year has brought richer results, leaving the drinker none the poorer. Cascades of rich peach and citrus are made taut via rippling acidity bringing refreshing resolve to the powerful front palate. Drink 2020-2026.
