*4 Stars - Decanter Magazine, January 2012*
A minimalist, non-interventionist winemaking approach was adopted. It is 100% barrel fermented and carefully matured in specially selected small French oak barriques sourced exclusively from Burgundian coopers. Fortnightly batonnage was employed throughout the 10 month maturation period. The result is a Chardonnay that is New World in provenance but Old World in stylistic leaning. A chiselled, focussed wine that effortlessly manages to be both subtle and intense. It has a rich core of fiercely expressive grapefruit, white peach, ripe pear and grilled hazel nuts aromas and flavours. The palate is penetrating and profound yet graceful and poised. A forceful mineral acidity is beautifully balanced by a subtle yet compelling intensity of fruit. A classic length, creaminess and intriguing complexity define this stylish, world class Chardonnay.
"Kevin Grant's wines are sublime, with gripping minerality in perfect harmony with the lush, near-tropical notes. The oak is perfectly judged, too." 18 points, Matthew Jukes, Decanter Magazine
"Oatmeal and creamy nose. Lots of struck match on the palate. Dry, full-on oaked Chardonnay but great freshness. Lime and grapefruit. Verging on tart." 16.5 points, Julia Harding - JancisRobinson.com, March 2013more ↓ less ↑
