(2023) This is 100% Chardonnay from vineyards at 410 metres above sea level, the soils are composed of volcanic rock and sand. It blends young wine with substantial reserve wine and spends 36 months on the lees. ravishing nose, with lots of yeasty autolysis and biscuit, quite an intense lime character and a streak of something herbal too. The mousse is fresh and has a certain crispness, supporting bright citrus, staying very cool and focused through to the finish, but not at all mean: there's an underlying sense of richness from that long lees ageing and the reserve wines that adds breadth to the finish too.
