Brilliant pale straw colour with a subtle tinge of green around the edges and a watery hue. Aromas of nectarine and light grapefruit have a distinct gun flint overlay with notions of roasted almonds, dried honey, toast and spice evident in the background. Ripe nectarine and grapefruit flavours show impressive richness across the elegantly built, mid weight palate. Dried honey, infusions of gun flint, roasted almonds and mineral characters all chime in to add complexity. Nicely rounded textural feel balanced by fresh acidity. Some toasty characters linger on the medium to long aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

Other Reviews…..
I don’t have a bottle image for this but it’s along the lines of the Pinot Noir posted here. This is pretty spiffy chardonnay it has to be said.
Chardonnay of line and length. It’s funky on opening but it quickly straightens up and settles down. White peach in all its pure glory; flint; the freshness of nectarine; the fibre of cedarwood runs towards nodes of woodsmoke. The finish is a spinnaker in which flavour is held. We are in beautiful territory here. Drink 2021-2027+.
