Hidden behind a reasonably modest exterior is a Chardonnay that deserves way more attention as well a higher price.
"Deep straw with golden hues lead to a bouquet of toasted stone fruits and barrel spices, there’s a fine mineral chalk-like quality adding complexity and finesse. Aromas of a complete wine. Plenty of classic flavours and textures on the palate with a roasted nut and baked stone fruits attack, vanilla and burnt butter, a touch of clove and stone mineral qualities. Dry, fine tannins, balanced, well made and ready to drink from 20203 through 2029. A wine that will continue to develop over the next 1-3 years." Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, March 2023 (2021 Vintage)
"This is immediately appealing on the nose with apricot, fig, vanilla, roasted cashew and oatmeal notes, leading to a flavoursome palate offering juicy fruit flavours with supple texture, finishing lingering and delectable. At its best: now to 2026." 5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2023 (2021 Vintage)
