The fruit was hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed directly to 100% brand new French oak where it was allowed a natural ferment. Barrel stirring was undertaken weekly and the wine underwent a full malolatic fermentation. It was rested for nine months in French oak before being blended and bottled in December 2022.

Pale straw, green edges in color, on the nose expect a fresh bouquet of apricot, vanilla pod, honeydew melon, pear tart and puff pastry. The palate is rich and full-bodied with yellow tart peach, vanilla, almond nougat and honeysuckle characters with a soft finish.

Gained top points from Matthews, who thought it: “A different spin on chenin blanc with new oak vanilla bean notes on the nose. Surprisingly, works quite well on the palate. Glossy green apple, baked pastries and crème fraiche. Nice line and
length, with seamless acidity.” I loved its apple/stone fruit combination, apple-skin texture and length.

Score - 95

Appealed to me with its positive, gooseberry and feijoa aromas. The palate’s round, with flavours turning more to stonefruits. It finishes with subtle sweetness and good ength. Honan noted, “A subtle lick of volatile acidity on the inhale. Saline sweetness on the palate, lemon and passionfruit. Moreishness. Great carry, compels another sip.
