2008 is one of my favourite vintages in Tasmania, and this cuvee captures the tension of its mood in a pale, bright straw hue and focused lemon and apple fruit. An almost two thirds chardonnay dominance is proclaimed win white fruit definition and layers of struck flint reduction. 7 years on lees has built more in texture than flavor, lending just subtle almond meal and charcuterie complexity. The tightly coiled acidity of this enduring season calls for time to unwind. Patience. Rating 95 To 2023 - Tyson Stelzer, Halliday Wine Companion 2018
Bright straw-green; this is as energetic and fresh as a three year old vintage sparkling, showing no signs of age. Granny smith apple, lemon zest and unsweetened lemon juice flavours cloak the deliberate tannins in the wine, are all there as part of the structure and texture that make this wine so exceptional. 96 Points.
