Rating: 98 Points
The soaring intensity and precision of the wine obliterates any comment about the oak. It is one of those uncommon chardonnays that demands you give it time, the more the merrier. Grapefruit is the masthead, but it gathers around it a suite of flavours that keep its energy and drive on track.

“Out To Impress” – Deep and penetrating creamy fruit with a nutty grapefruit minerally edge. Impressive palate length.
