Quite golden in colour for a young wine. Has that typical (for Norman Hardie) reductive, flinty nose, complex and...

A very even mineral toned chardonnay with amazingly well integrated aromas of apple, melon and lemon with slatey...

Right off the top this is significantly toasty, stinky-reductive, even a little off-putting with its vegetal compost,...

Highly aromatic nose is flinty and toasty with ripe apple, vanilla, and lemon aromas in a slightly reductive profile. It is medium-bodied on the palate with crisp, clean acids and reductive in style with more lemon, mineral, and poached apple flavours. Long, persistent finish that shows some of that famed County minerality. Tasted July/2019.
