The natural ferment contributes a lifted, aromatic and complex nose. The palate opens with apple blossom, mandarin, honeycomb, spice and creamy stone fruits yet remains delicate with a long finish of sea salt and graphite.
"This is a wine of delicate beauty, with aromas of peach and citrus. The palate delivers flavours of citrus, mandarin orange and stone fruits. There is a hint of minerality, with a lingering finish. The oak is very subtle, framing the clean and focused fruit flavours."
- John Schreiner
"Capture is a texture and weight chardonnay but with restraint. The butter, apples, and pears give way to spice, honey, and tangerine before a lightly saline mineral finish. You can drink this now, but I suggest five years of cellaring for the best results."
- Anthony Gismondi
"Elegant and beautifully balanced, this seems substantial but graceful at the same time, handling its new wood reasonably well. It has perhaps the most sensual texture of the group. As it evolved, it became fresher and brighter—a lot more fun to drink. The refined presentation makes this good to drink on its own or with food, but it certainly has the stuffing for a food pairing. This is a little understated, but it steadily grew on me as it aired out and warmed up."
