A bright and glistening pale green flecked with gold in the glass, like looking into the eye of a duck. The perfume is sumptuous and sublime yet more finessed than your typical mock-Meursault offering of Stellenbosch Chardonnay. The palate is generous and complex, with notes of freshly picked peaches and apricots complemented by thickly spread chunky marmalade and butterscotch on the finish.

The majority of the wine is aged in second and third fill French oak with the remainder in new oak, all for 11 months. The use of old oak adds texture to the wine without overwhelming the fruit with an oaky flavour. 30% of the wine is fermented using only the natural yeasts present on the skin of the grapes.

But don’t just take our word for it. Jane Anson, contributing editor and Bordeaux correspondent for Decanter, was equally impressed awarding the wine 96/100 whilst Tim Atkin scored it 93/100.

This wine is landing in the UK at the end of July and any orders will be fulfilled early August.
