Clear white-silver with a pale white-gold event horizon. True chardonnay fruit and natural acid tension are, herein, in stride. Candied peel aromatics, step-by-step, with white stone fruits, wet river pebbles, and bath salts. Hints of breadfruit, passion fruit, and then a olfactory wall of Meyer lemon and blood orange zest. This is an ever-changing and rewarding cup. A line of very ordered and neat acidity is laced with a graphitic edge; this guides the candied peel and white stone fruit flavours through the wine’s topography. There’s undoubted restraint here; and yet below lurks some fruit power that will be keen to show itself in a supple and intellectual way in two or three years more. The palate plays on this and provides all that is fleeting and all that is yet to come. A shadow falls and a shadow disappears.
