95 POINTS: Very distinctive and engaging bouquet with powerful barrel influences, contrasting core of fruit and stony rocky mineral layers. Equally engaging on the palate with flavours of barrel, grapefruit, green pear, apple and lees derived barrel-ferment flavours. Plenty of acidity, weight and intensity. A new classic with memorable textures, flavours and finish. Drink now and through 2024.
96 POINTS: Elegant and appealing chardonnay with grapefruit, white peach, nectarine, bran biscuit and subtle mineral/oyster shell flavours. Smooth-textured and complex wine that is deliciously drinkable now but will reward a few years in bottle.
