Wine tasting notes

Shimmering pale gold straw, this was unusually subdued on the nose, though with obvious underlying richness held in check. Quite restrained, with just hints of an orchard fruit medley, warm pastries and vanilla ice cream, there are shades of lime zest for refreshment. On agitation, with warming a little, the wine becomes much more expressive, opening up to provide a combination of tropical and citrus fruit, laced with honey and vanilla – hints of pain aux raisins with associated spice - lovely wine.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2016) - 95 pts

Chalky at first, the 2016 Chardonnay takes its time to reveal citrus blossoms, lime peel, crushed stone, apricots and pure lemon and apple fruit with dusty, minerally nuances. The palate walks a wonderful line of pure, ripe fruits and fresh citrusy and rocky accents. It has a silky texture, tangy lift and a very long, nuanced finish. This has the stuffing and structure to be very long lived.
