2010 Chardonnay Block 2

Tasting Date: 23 March 2012

A complex Chardonnay still in the subtlety of its youth. The aromatics start with nutty typicity. Vibrant stone fruit blossoms and peach pit are beginning to rise over savoury notes of wet stone and musk. Mouth coating texture with a core of pristine, crystalline purity. Both lingering and refreshing. Drink / Hold

Tasting Date: October 2011

17 months on gross lees in barrel (only 12% new) have left their mark on the nose: hints of grapefruit, but a dark cellar complexity with whiffs of toast, charcuterie and damp stone. The palate is richly textural with pink grapefruit, cream, but a mineral core of tension and absolute purity. Huge length through the finish, where the minerality dominates. A serious, long haul prospect that will reward patience.
