A stunning expression of sauvignon that marries complexity and purity to exalted effect. The nose is all tight-wound sulphides and grapefruit citrus, really breathtaking, lemon rind and lime leaf here too. The palate has a core of scintillatingly pure grapefruit citrus flavor, a wealth of fleshy textural presence and a core of fine, driving acidity. Terrific nutty nuanced resolve. Drink now. 95/100
The 2013 Chardonnay is a funked-up, full-on sulphide led wine, which is OK because there’s plenty of intense fruit to back-up the winemaking. The nose has a stuck-match and savory / minerally appeal supporting the ripe peach, passion fruit and spiced apple pie scents plus a nutty undercurrent. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with creamy, stone fruit and marzipan characters supported by a lively acid line and finishing with great persistence.
