"A mix of 4 clones; Gin Gin, 76, 95 and 5. Hand picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild ferment in barrel. A very sophisticated nose, textural, worked and complex. The fruit has a rich, ripe viscosity to it and a fierce salty edge. Red apple skins and tea leaves, salted kelp, slippery ripe yellow peach and a fair whack of curry leaf, brine and preserved lemon. This is happening. A subtle shift in style here, more multifaceted and shimmering, always moving, like dappled sunlight. The best chardonnay under this label to date."

"Riper and richer than the 2017, and boasting some intriguing sulfide-y complexity, the 2018 Chardonnay is nevertheless built along similar lines, incorporating indigenous-yeast fermentation in one-third new oak barrels, plus a significant proportion of malolactic fermentation. Toasted hazelnuts accent pear and melon fruit in a wine that's full-bodied and round on the palate but crisp and focused on the long finish"
