1994 plantings. Pressed directly to oak and therefore fermented in barrel. 20% new oak. The wine was left in oak post ferment and left for eight months with no movement, before being transferred to tank, and then to bottle.
These are fabulous wines. It’s the fact, to some extent, that the acidity is drenched is flavour that really sets this wine on its way. There’s a savoury-almost-brine-like element, cuts of nectarine, nashi pears, citrus and steel. There are also nboth chalk and oak characters but neither are major. Everything here is pulling together, and heading in the right direction. 94+ Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
