All Chardonnay from the original vineyards at Ridgeview. Just 11 months on lees (!) .2015, 16 and 17 vintages. 3 g/l dosage.
Fresh lemony oak, white butter, the wood is fairly bold but of high quality with nutmeg/yellow spice and a nice sweet dill/fennel note. The palate is harmonious, with some real finesse to the texture inside the slightly grippy, but fresh oak. The incisive fruit still shines, with the acidity just in check. Feels very youthful, but stylish and moreish. 16.5
