Solid, sturdy chardonnay with plenty of weight and concentration. Peppery tannins with grapefruit, stone fruit and a hint of oak. Slightly grippy phenolics together with fruity acidity offer a firm structure. Bob Campbell MW

The estate Chardonnay is a blend of six different vineyards with approximately 20% fermented in new oak barrels. Texturally, this cuvée offers a sense of flow; it is relaxed in its own skin but provides welcome tension on the precise finish thanks to a line of firm acidity that will leave you smacking your lips. The 20% new oak is well integrated, contributing delicate nougat flavors, and allowing the subtle nectarine and honeydew melon flavors to shine on the medium-length finish. Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous
