1998 Chardonnay Barrel Fermented

Tasting Date: 9 February 2006

A very pleasant surprise: Straw gold; the wine shows seamless integration with a near ideal balance of acid, fruit and oak. There is evident maturity but no unpleasant signs of ageing with a little popcorn brulée and good viscosity, but a freshness and fruit-weight that shows the wine is at a mature plateau rather than sliding downhill: at its peak now and certainly a drink rather than hold as I feel that any further maturation will probably be to its detriment.


After a lot of thought we have decided not to use Facebook or Twitter. We like longer conversations and for them to be personal not public. If we did it, it would be because it is a fashion and not because our heart is in it and that doesn’t feel right. So please email, or much better come and see us.
