95 POINTS | Cameron Douglas
World class Gimblett Chardonnay. Wonderfully restrained - where oak, fruit weight and acidity work in harmony to produce a fluent style that is understated in its youth. Ever consistent.
Cameron Douglas writes "Ripe core of baked stone fruits and grapefruit aromas, soft floral and vanilla wood scents, some baked goods with a creme-patisserie suggestion; dry stone and sandy soil layer. Bold and expressive textures with spice, acidity and wood tones all strong; dry on the finish with echoes of all the flavours described."
Spicy, floral and lightly toasted aromas open to flavours of ripe nectarine and red apple with softly integrated nutty oak. Layered with generous warm fruit which is expertly balanced with fine acidity, this results in a wine that demands attention.
