Complex aromas of toast, yeast and flint with hint of white flower and white stone fruit. Textural palate with notes of white peach, grapefruit and well integrated oak.
“Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed before an indigenous fermentation. A small portion was skin-inflected, conferring a waft of phenolics and flavour intensity. Maturation: all French wood (35% new), 10 months. Delicious. Long and intense, brimming with white nectarine, tatami, cedar-vanillin oak and truffled, wild yeast, nougat scents. This is tightly furled, nascent and virile. The smoky oak riding uber alles.” ~ Ned Goodwin, 94 points, 2020 Halliday Wine Companion.
