93 Pts - David Lawrason
“Here’s a very elegant, refined and tightly woven chardonnay that scores on balance, complexity and length. Not overtly aromatic but the aromatics are a fine fusion of toast, nutmeg, breadcrust and vague dried apple fruit. Mid-weight, very even and lively yet showing some chardonnay richness as well. Hints of oxidation but it plays very well. The length is excellent to outstanding. This is non-obvious, beguiling, palate pleasing chardonnay.”

90 Pts - John Szabo, MS
“The palate offers an engaging salty-mineral profile - with genuine depth, balance and intensity, with nicely integrated barrel influence (all old wood, mostly 500l casks). It will be a wine who’s evolution will be fascinating to track.”

93 Pts - Rick VanSickle
“Such verve and intensity on the palate with rich and creamy pear, apple skin, lees, lemon, spice and driven by profound flint and salinity that all lead to a fresh and finessed finish. It’s a beautiful expression of Country fruit.“

Hand harvested from our estate September 19-24th, and pressed whole-cluster. Wild-fermented and put to barrel part-way through the ferment based on taste. All-French barrels were used with a final ratio of 33% 2nd-fill, 17% 3rd-fill and 50% neutral oak in both 225L and 500L sizes. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with only minimal sulphurs at bottling.
-
Creamy lemon aromatics with light notes of caramel this wine is more full bodied from the heat of the 2018 growing season. A classic minerality runs through the palate with medium acidity and a rich body from extended lees contact.
