Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Limpid, dense, brilliant, very pale gold. Enormously perfumed: pear, brioche, fennel pollen, lemon curd; hints of cassia and clove; also semolina, and melon rind. This gives a sense of fully ripe, but never overripe, fruit; heady but fresh, broad but detailed. In the mouth, combines power with charm; retro-olfactively floral, as one seems to taste a rose, when inhaling its scent; pear again, and a pretty squash flower/melon nuance. Almost excoriating finish, but never topples, or forfeits poise. Coy but somehow adamant, flirtatious in an implacable sort of way."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, June 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, paler on the edge. The nose is full, deep and firm with aromas of ripe yellow stonefruits along with tropical fruit and honey, lifted by subtle yellow floral notes, unveiling nutty and mineral lees with suggestions of earth. This has considerable depth and density. Dry to taste and full-bodied, the palate is fulsome and robust with lusciously ripe flavours of yellow stonefruits and tropical fruit, along with honey and yellow florals. The richness and sheer power of the mouthfeel is relieved by steely nutty and mineral elements. The wine flows along a light-textured phenolic line, with alcohol power and drive carrying the richness and fruit extract. The wine leads to a strong finish with plenty of presence of stonefruit and honied flavours. This is a fulsome, ripe, dry Pinot Blanc with presence and weight, showing stonefruits, tropical fruits and honey, driven by alcohol power. Match with Middle Eastern fare over the next 3-4+ years. From 1.2 ha of the ‘Kerner’ vineyard, on Fareham Lane, Waihopi, hand-picked, WBP, indigenous yeast fermented to 15.0% alc. and 3.6 g/L RS, the wine aged 17 months in 5% new French demi-muids of 450-500 L, the wine undergoing MLF."
