    May 11, 2018 - What a nice surprise. Found this tucked away in my cellar. Condition was a testament to good cellaring and Stelvin top. Colour was pale straw -perhaps just a little too odd for a 9yo chardonnay. Flavour was delicate peach, pear and a little apple acidity. Light cinnamon back notes. Perhaps not all together typical but nonetheless enjoyable. Lacks a genuine depth and evolved experience.

    June 17, 2011 - Absolutely fabulous white. Another refined chardonnay from the new world, delicate, layered and with lots of terroir. Citrus flavours, stone fruits and tons of minerality. Seems like they have finally cracked it how to make whites that resemble Burgundy whites. Drink it only slightly chilled and give it two hours of air and you will know what I am talking about! Great stuff.
