2012 Chardonnay Block 2

Tasting Date: 15 November 2013

Bright and focussed, with seamless integration. Elderflower, spring blossoms and white peach with complexing notes of flint and cut stone. Deep and focussed with lingering intensity. A very authentic expression that articulates the site with great clarity.

Drink / Hold

Tasting Date: May 2013

Hints of white peach introduce the further complexing notes of almond blossom, flint and cut stone. The palate is less heavy and rich than usual for a Block 2 but this pleasantly provides greater finesse and precision. A very authentic expression that articulates the site with great clarity. Lingering, exacting and quite uplifting on the finish.

Gourmet Traveller, April/May 2014

 Supple, elegant chardonnay with grapefruit, nectarine, wet stone mineral and butterscotch flavours representing the more obvious descriptors. A wine that offers subtle power with its extraordinary length. Very classy chardonnay. 95*****

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Spet/Oct 2014

Pale yellow. High-pitched aromas of crystallized lemon peel and lime oil. Dense and energetic, offering excellent definition and inner-mouth tension to the brisk citrus and mineral flavors. Boasts terrific spine for New Zealand chardonnay without coming across as green or hard. Long and tactile on the aftertaste. 91 Points.
