'Just 2,500 bottles produced. Roughly 35 year old vines from a single vineyard, 100% barrel fermented with older shaven oak. Wild yeast ferment. An intense nose with lemon biscuit, vanilla pod spice and dusty yellow apples, aniseed and pineapple confit. Beautifully textured, massive concentration of apple pastille, pink musk, white peach, dusty talc minerality and exotic quince and yellow citrus depth. A classic cool style signature Migliarina wine that when you open it, it’s hard to stop until the bottle is finished. This is very special and very impressive.' – Greg Sherwood MW, 94+/100

'The 2017 Chenin Blanc was entirely fermented in barrel. It has a lifted bouquet of green apple, fresh pear and light citrus peel notes, perhaps more akin to a Chardonnay than a Chenin Blanc. The fresh, vibrant palate is well balanced with fine acidity. A taut, linear Chenin Blanc with a razor-sharp finish. Excellent.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100 (Aug 2018)
