Tasting notes:
'The drought affected yields in Elgin in 2018, but it didn't affect the quality in the slightest. Elegantly wooded in 30% new oak, this is leesy, textured and very refreshing, like a scaled down version of the Seven Flags Chardonnay. Drink 2020-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100

'Subtler oaking (9 months, 20% new) than Seven Flags & only 15% malo give lively citrus, peach & honey tones centre stage in wild-fermented 2018. Seamless & fresh, ends with a delicious baked apple persistence.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

Alc: 13.7%
