Wild ferment in barrel (20% new). Soft tropics here – pineapple, honeydew melon and nashi pear. The palate is silky and fine, plenty of taut acidity and lustrous fruit to keep the wheels turning.92 pts - Ken Gargett (Wine Pilot)
A fine Pemberton Chardy, though early days for it at the moment. Fermentation was with wild yeasts in barrel, 20% of which was new. Then seven months maturation in French oak, 17% of which was new. Deep yellow in colour, there are good aromatics here, moving through cashew nuts and stonefruit, notably peaches and apricots. There are tropical touches as well. This is finely balanced with an appealingly supple texture, though to a tight poised palate. A youthful, well-crafted Chardonnay with length. Enjoyable now, it will be even better in three to four years.
