This single-block Chardonnay is from a part of the vineyard planted in 2001, situated at the crest of a hill and facing east. The fruit was picked 10 days after the estate Chardonnay fruit, but at the same ripeness levels, which gives one an idea of the variable nature of the estate vineyards. The fruit was destemmed, lightly crushed and pressed. It spent 12 months in barrel (25% new) in the cellar downstairs, followed by a winter in tank upstairs to naturally settle.

Reviews

“Nectarine, lemon zest, aniseed, some spicy cinnamon oak, but also very saline and savoury. It feels chalky, with grapefruity acidity through more nutty flavours, very tight and intense, though no shortage of flavour and length. A certain amount of width through the palate, and yet feels linear and stretches out with gently oxidative and salty character. Very distinctive, almost a Jura-like thing happening, which is all very nice, and it runs slightly peppery in the aftertaste. Excellent.”
95 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
"The bouquet is ethereal yet arrests attention, but it's the amazing intensity of the wine on the palate that’s breathtaking. The grapefruit/white peach duo meet their match with the electrifying acidity, creating layers of flavour that are welded together, yet never say too much."
