This Chardonnay has been made with only the “free run” juice – the first run, finest quality juice without the bitterness and phenolics associated with the grape skin. The juice was fermented in new and second use French oak 500 litre puncheons with some grape solids giving the wine a complex savoury note. It matured in oak for 9 months. Colour is a bright clear steely white with youthful green hues. Nectarine and mandarin are complemented by a textured savoury mid palate with hints of melon and spicy vanillin oak leading to a long crisp grapefruit finish. A vibrant lifted nose of citrus and stone fruits with savoury cashew notes and hints of gunflint and toasty French oak. This wine will improve with up to 10 years careful cellaring.

92 points - Halliday Wine Companion (James Halliday)

Fermented (with some solids) and matured in French puncheons (30% new) for 10 months. In the typical elegant, restrained style of Apricus, with the fruit flavours midway between stone fruit and citrus, the oak integrated and balanced. Perfectly well made, but needs a bit of tough love somewhere in the make-up.

92 points - Wine Enthusiast

This bright yellow wine carries aromas of tangerine peel and almond shell. The palate starts off rather light in tones of baguette and Macoun apple, yet lots of swirling reveals notes of lemongrass, fennel, sea salt and vegetable broth. This medium-bodied white offers immense potential at the dinner table with its savory, spicy characters and vivacious dryness. Drink now–2021.
