    The great leap forward. Struck match, stonefruit and grapefruit tang, spiced biscuits, and personality. It hits the palate, grips and thrills, ample flavour but delivered with finesse and energy. Flinty bits through sheen of regional fruit power. Such length, precise and clean to close. Superb. Drink 2019-2029+ 96 points.

    Mixed citrus, melon and stonefruit, whiff of struck match, honey and white flowers. Powerful, but not over-done, lime and just ripe pineapple, pumice stone texture, tang of sweet citrus acidity lights it up, toasty oak noted, but integrating,  finish is effortlessly long. Superstar. I’m dithering between 96 and 97 points, but the quiet authority and length, I think, have convinced me. Drink 2020-2030+  97 points.

    " Light yellow hue with a smoky, slightly burnt-rubber overtone to the bouquet, while the palate is intense and refined, penetrative and long, with a little development starting to creep in. Roasted hazelnuts starting up. A powerful, concentrated chardonnay, with excellent persistence. A very satisfying full-bodied chardonnay."
