Brilliant pale straw colour with distinct highlights of green around the edges and a watery hue. Pronounced grapefruit, citrus and nectarine aromas intermix with biscuity oak and infusions of gun flint. Fleshy nectarine and pear fruits overlay a back drop of grapefruit, faint dried honey, biscuity oak and gun flint. Fresh acidity with an elegant, gently cream tinged medium to long finish.

Other Reviews….
From a single block at 880m elevation with soils dominated by quartz; aged in new French oak puncheons on lees for 11 months. White gardenia, lemon balm, pomelo and apple flesh. Oyster shell, crushed sand and nashi pear. The wine is tightly wound with crystalline minerality and a core of pure lemon Icy Pole citrus. Fruit is compact and oak cradles it like a hammock. This acidity shimmers like the sparkle of fresh snow, it's agile, energetic and dances across the palate. Orange chardonnay handled just right, the vineyard expression up in lights. Stunning. Drink by 2030.
