    Super refined and cool peach and grapefruit aromas with gently flinty minerally accents. The oak adds a smoky edge. The palate has powerful driving fruit with punchy acid presence and a super long, fine and mouthwatering core of citrus and just-ripe white stone fruits. Grilled hazelnuts to close. Superb chardonnay.

    A warm and drier than average season has resulted in richer and more intense flavours of stone fruit, ginger flower and preserved lemon. More complexity and depth from winemaking inputs such as whole-bunch pressed and fermentation in French oak with lees stirring throughout a 9 month period. Yet this never feels besieged, as the natural acidity glides across the palate reining everything in. A pleasure to drink.
