Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"​Embracing the warm 2015 vintage completely, we celebrated stepping in to this harvest with the most beautiful fruit. Perfect flowering, wonderful summer weather conditions allowed for full production off our tiny 2.2 hectare vineyards. Warmer vintages allow for the vine to move further into our soils looking for water, penetrating deep into the limestone at a length of over 5 meters deep. All home wines have moved into a new dimension of flavour and tension solely due to the contribution of the limestone soils we grow on. The wines have years of cellaring potential, are showing their terroir at a vine age of 15 years very different to the earlier years of Pyramid Valley."
5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2015 Vintage)
"Taut, high energy chardonnay with chalky mineral, citrus, grapefruit, wildflower, cashew nut and bran biscuit characters. A restrained wine with underlying power and an ethereal texture. Should develop well."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, June 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Light yellow colour with pale green-gold hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is very elegant and very refined with delicately concentrated aromas of white stonefruits and citrus fruits in a harmonious amalgam of nutty lees notes and suggestions of oak toast, unfolding to reveal a core of minerals and saline nuances. This has finesse and elegance. Medium-bodied, the palate has a rich, elegantly refined and rounded core with concentrated flavours of white stonefruits and citrus fruit, along with subtle notes of minerals and toasty oak. The palate has a fine proportion with positive drive, power and energy. The wine flows along a very finely concentrated line with delicate phenolic textures with bright, lacy acidity, leading to a very long and sustained citrussy and minerally finish. This is a refined and delicately concentrated Chardonnay with stonefruit and citrus fruits, along with mineral elements on a refreshing, lively and lacy palate. Serve with seafood and poultry dishes over the next 5+ years. From a south-east facing block, 20-25% clay and 5-10% active lime. Fruit WBP, and indigenous yeast fermented, half in clay giare and half in seasoned French demi-muids to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months on lees in giare and barrel with MLF. 1,200 bottles made."
