Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
There s some real prowess here in terms of styling and winemaking handiwork. This shows plenty of buttered peach and fresh melon, and the oak adds baking spices that really suit the style neatly. The palate s seriously concentrated and beautifully focused, offering fleshy peach flavour that s dressed in toasty oak and runs impressively deep and long.

Glowing yellow-green; from two small blocks above 500 m. Hand-picked, part whole bunch-pressed, wild yeast, 10 months on primary lees in 30% new barriques, racked to tank, fined and filtered. An extremely elegant, beautifully poised palate, white peach and nectarine fruit plus a squeeze of citrus seamlessly folded through the subtle oak.

Another stylish and complex chardonnay for this label. Hall makes a feast of the white stone fruits of the Piccadilly Valley and adds cleverly judged complex barrel-fermentation characters: grilled nuts, fresh sourdough bread and nougat. The palate's beautifully composed, with effortless texture and impressive length; there are melon and peach flavours, intertwined with savoury-nut complexity. Lip-smacking fresh finish.

Bright colour; a fragrant bouquet of nectarine and citrus leads into a vibrant and incisive palate with white peach and nectarine fruit, the oak subtle, the acidity natural; 250 cases made.

Super-concentrated and rich;peach, nectarine and fig fruit framed by strong barrel ferment French oak; obvious lees and mlf influences. Striking wine in all respects.
