Item Code: ITM6109
Pale straw yellow in colour with complex aromas of citrus and stone fruit with light toasty notes. Time in French oak has created a plush, creamy palate that is both rich and mouth-filling. The zesty acid forms a balanced framework for the wine, which finishes with an elegant, long farewell.
Item Code: ITM3569
Pale straw in colour with a delicate, tight minerally nose that opens beautifully to reveal lovely aromas of white peach. The palate is surprisingly full-bodied, fresh and rich yet crunchy, while the finish is quite textural and long, with an appealing acid line. A wine that will age gracefully and evolve into a Meursault-style Chardonnay.

"Gleaming straw-green; a high quality chardonnay that is ageing with grace, still fresh as a daisy with years to go before reaching its zenith. The bouquet is decidedly complex, the palate with grapefruit zest and precise acidity drawing out its length and aftertaste." Halliday Wine Companion

With time on its side, it comes ready with citrus, restraint and complexity that will continue to develop over time.

spent a short time on lees for complexity.
The palate is tightly structured with
considerable length and an amazing breadth
of citrus characters. There is a hint of toasty
complexity which will continue to develop with
"From two dry-grown blocks with an average age of 60 years. Five years have passed since the wine was made, but it’s oh so young and fresh, with years of life in front of it; its balance and length are faultless, so its future is gold-plated." James Halliday
