For me, the pick of the Long Gully wines, though it has some stiff competition. It was whole bunch pressed to barrel with 15% new oak plus wild yeast ferment before nine months in barrel for maturation.
The immediate impression is of really lovely, creamy aromatics. Stonefruits, grilled nuts, ginger and crème brulee. One has to love such a beautifully expressive nose. There are the gentlest touches of oak, barely visible leading to a fine, focused, seamless palate. Right on the finish, a hint of citrus too with excellent length. This is a wine which is delicious now but should be even more so in a few years. An impressive Chardy and one that is also excellent value.
