    Winemaker's Notes:

    The nose displays apple pie, ripe pear, melon and some brioche characters which combine to give intense aromas. The wine is medium to full bodied with ripe pear skin, custard tart with a silky creaminess driven by the purity of the pear and melon fruit. The creaminess gives way to a tight and long acid structure which gives the wine backbone and provides its impeccable length.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A second label equal to most producers' best, although the price (inevitably) reflects the quality; fragrant white peach and grapefruit aromas and flavours drive the wine, having soaked up the barrel ferment oak in the process; long, complete and perfectly balanced.

    Bright yellow. Complex, heady bouquet of dried pear, melon, honey and botanical herbs, with a smoky mineral undertone. Spicy and precise on the palate, showing gently sweet honeydew and orchard fruit flavors with complicating notes of sage, licorice and white pepper. Very complex chardonnay with strong finishing bite and lingering sweetness.
