First sip I thought this woody and awful, probably because of having the off-dry Riesling as previous wine. But when I revisited it was much improved, light oak notes framing a apple meets lemon Chard profile. Not buttery at all, decent acids. B
The Hawk hill designate seems to be the leesy one of the herd. There are strong lemony yeasty notes on the nose and palate which is laden with nuts. There is sediment to it so allow for it to stand vertical prior. Plenty of acid on it which can easily carry it another 4 years or so, but it is beautiful now. Medium in it's complexity, this wine can keep you guessing as to it's make-up.
