Pale straw with green tinges.
Aromas of nectarine, sweet citrus and crushed almond.
The palate combines beautifully with the fine acid line and savoury generosity of the wine. Notes of nougat, lemon curd and nectarine are carried by the subtle grainy texture to create a wine that is both elegant and moreish.
Cellar for 3–5 years.
The fruit was handpicked, and whole bunch pressed straight to French barriques, 30% new, for wild fermentation. Occasional lees stirring was performed to build texture with primary development in oak for nine months.

Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed to French barriques (30% new), wild-fermented, 9 months in oak. Good cool-grown chardonnay, a touch lean perhaps.91
