Details

"Aromas of elderflower and stone fruit, an evocation of bright, reflective stones and cool air. The north facing slope, higher elevation and greater exposure of Block 6, lend an extra degree of ripeness and stature compared to the finer, more mineral Block 2. The palate leads with grapefruit pith and persimmon flavours becoming broad and powerful. Honest and expressive of its unique vineyard origin."

"95 Points. Taut, youthful and still quite closed chardonnay with wet stone/mineral, a hint of marzipan, white peach/stone fruit and nicely integrated oak. An impressive, powerful wine that can be appreciated now but needs time to reveal its full potential."
