B209

2009 Chardonnay Block 2

Tasting Date: 15 November 2013

Floral and perfumed with intriguing anise and spice. Initially delicate palate showcasing stonefruit and building in weight to a rambunctious finale. Luxuriantly textured yet retaining minerality through core. Faultlessly poised yet undeniably powerful.

Tasting Date: 23 March 2012

Citrus flowers and white peach blossom circle a flinty mineral core. The luxuriantly textured palate flows seamlessly from driving flint to buttered scallops and an oily finale lit by hints of nut and dried fruit. Faultlessly poised yet undeniably powerful. 

Drink / Hold

Tasting Date: October 2010

The nose is fresh and perfumed expressing spring flowers and citrus blossom. The palate is very textural, filling the mouth, yet the flavour keeps its delicate poise with honeysuckle and citrus flowers overlying the usual crisp acidity. Oak is very much in the background, if detectable at all. While the power within the palate will undoubtedly come forward over the coming months and years, the subtlety and delicacy continue to be the driving force. The combination of texture with the sheer poise of the wine is an exciting counterpoint.
