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 through 2021. Impressive style with a big future – this is next world BC chardonnay. Serve with west coast oysters on the half shell."
– Anthony Gismondi
"This aromatic wine intrigues with tones of seashell, flint, grass and citrus. It opens into a textured, complex palate that brings in flavors of Meyer lemon and orange, with hints of jicama and white pepper. Drink now–2028."
