2013 Chardonnay Block 2

2013 Chardonnay Block 2

 A nose that reassures with an essence of subtle Chardonnay characters that are seamlessly integrated: predominantly citrus, elderflower and a wet stone minerality. The palate opens with an expansive softness that coats the mouth, then builds and tightens sufficiently through the finish to give the wine great persistence. No added yeast, no new oak, no fining, no filtration?. in fact, not a lot of anything; just sensitively farmed grapes from our finest Chardonnay parcel. An uplifting wine of great harmony and poise.

The Block 2 Chardonnay has wonderfully expressive apricot and apple tart notes with underlying ginger, cashew and lightly browned toast hints. Medium bodied and packed with youthful apple and citrus flavors supported by crisp acid, it has a long spice and nut laced finish. 93 points.

Gourmet Traveller, Bob Campbell MW, April/May 2015

This is a dense, rich and complex wine that’s deliciously drinkable now but will offer much more with extra bottle-age. A sophisticated and powerful wine that gives a strong nod in the direction of Burgundy. 97 Points *****
