Winemaking and foudre combine to impart aromas of the seashore with wet stones, flint and Asian spices on the nose combined with a tropical lift. The palate has a zesty entry, with a hint of richness and minerals followed by a lingering flavour of lychee, ginger, spice and saltwater. This is a unique, modern Chardonnay that also pays homage to the old world.

"It's the brightness and what I like to term electricity that grabs you at the front of the glass. The minerality and texture is cru Chablis-like, and when you mix in a seashore breeze and flinty, saline notes flecked with bits of tropical fruit and five spice, you sense a special, complex version of chardonnay that will age well."
