Tasting Notes

Premium Chardonnay made from prized blocks of low yielding clone 95, a superior clone originating from the Côte d’Or, France. Complex aromatics with layers of ripe citrus and stone fruits mingling with marzipan and nutty oak elements. Rich and creamy on the palate with fresh mineral acidity; soft textures with strength and underlying power. 

Immediately approachable with cellaring potential reaching 7 years.

Reviews

 An exceptional quality Chardonnay.  Complex aromatics; grapefruit, apple, vanilla and bramble leaf. Full, thick, rich and round on the palate.  Apple, pears and citrus with a touch of oak and vanilla.
* Karl Klip - My Wine Pal

 89 pts ♦ Offers a sensual and vibrant nose with rich, stone and citrus fruit aromas and a susurrus of macadamia nuts and green pineapple. A mouth-watering and RS-kissed, full-ish palate follows with a similar combination of bright and juicy fruit flavours and a wave of mineral and spice notes on the long finish.
* Liam Carrier - Icon Wines

 91 pts ♦ This barrel-fermented wine, made from a low-yielding French clone, begins with aromas of citrus, apple and vanilla. The wine is rich and creamy on the palate with flavours of citrus, apple and stone fruit.
* John Schreiner on Wine

92. One nose to the glass reveals that classic ripe pear/peach fruit of top Burgundies, packed with peat smoke, hazelnut, vanilla cream and baguette leesiness. It is certainly rich, generous and intense on the palate, and a touch sweet, but maintains equilibrium and a sense of freshness. The length is excellent to outstanding, with fruit staying in focus and keeping its cool despite 14.5% alcohol, while gentle brown spices and toast add to the complexity. This is splendid chardonnay. Tasted Feb 2020.
