A unique reflection of its terroir and aging vessel, this wine exhibits synergy, balanced acidity, and the aromatics of a truly handcrafted wine.
Winemaking and foudre combine to impart aromas of the seashore with wet stones, flint, lychee and 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 seat salt. This is a unique, modern Chardonnay that also pays homage to the old world.
"Begins with a fresh saline/seaside aroma and flavour that permeates the wine. The structure is fresh with a reductive/minerality note that adds a bit of tightness to a very pure fruited Chardonnay."
- Anthony Gismondi
"There's a big hit of sweet wood up front, a lot of vanilla and a touch of coconut. Overall, however, this is a well-balanced and very elegant Chardonnay that is never overwhelmed by the wood impact."
- Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
