This is a cracker of a wine, it's layered and complex with freshly baked bread, lemon tart, apple pie, cinnamon, spice, toast and a whiff of smokiness. There is a comforting richness on the palate which is full of mineral laced citrus fruits, spice, chalk and herbal hints. It's fresh, vivacious, displays harmony and a refreshing acidity on the lingering finish.

A blend of 66% Pinot Noir and 34% Chardonnay, this is opulent and full bodied, with toast and wood flavors. Rich and ripe, this beautiful wine is generous and still young, with just a touch of bitterness at the end.
Wine Spectator (WS): 94
Firm, with well-cut acidity and a fine texture, this is aromatic, delivering a skein of ground spice and graphite notes that mesh seamlessly with the flavors of black currant, black cherry, toasted almond, financier, honey and smoky mineral. Offers a long, mouthwatering finish
