Medium to light-yellow colour, with a complex young-wine bouquet of smoky struck-flints and roasted hazelnuts, the sulfides having an almost electrical-short overtone. It's tremendously intense on the tongue, refined and bright, penetrating and tensioned, with crisp, cleansing dryness that persists for a very long time. Grapefruit and lemon fruit flavours linger long and insistent. A great chardonnay. Huon Hooke

Pale lemon tones in the glass. The nose leaps with chalk and seashell minerality over a hint of gun-smoke. Such fine bones! It dances across the tongue with lift and life yet the intensity of that fruit cannot be ignored. It carries bright lemon drops, karkalla and sea mist notes with chalk and shell mineral notes entwined. Long, and longer it goes culminating in another burst of refreshing acid and a complexing fuzz of phenolics. Stuart Knox
