    • Attractive and savoury Chardonnay on show. Initial “chicken salt” brine and light mealy notes before a rearguard of stonefruit, grapefruit citrus, cucumber water and softly smoky, sultry vanilla kissed oak. Tight as a button, almost to the point of introversion. Straight and lean, stays within the lines. There’s an edge of nettle: both flavour and sting. Carries with persistence, rather than generosity for the moment. Give it a little time to relax. Regan Drew December 9, 2020
