$65.00 750mL

The 2021 Chardonnay opens with aromas of citrus blossom, jasmine, and bay laurel. Notes of white peach, lime zest, and orange curd are backed by a persistent minerality. A deft balance of textural richness and fresh acidity culminates in an undeniably delicious classic Chardonnay.

95 points, Decanter: "A beautifully refined Chardonnay with irresistible pure fruit flavours, tension, and vivacity. Alluring quince, lime zest, Marcona almonds, and Lilly of the Valley all embody a heady bouquet. At the same time, the wine layers itself on the palate with a penetrating core of quince and Marzipan enveloped in vanilla essence. What’s most striking is the minerality, which has three-dimensional qualities, evoking round wet river stones and fractured slate, which, married with the crystalline acid tension, brings the wine into focus and carries the finish for well over a minute. On top of all that complexity, it is one of the brightest wines from the entire appellation and a true testament to the slice of spectacular terroir."
