Cropped at 16.86 hectoliter per hectare and raised in 35% new oak barrels the 2010 Chardonnay is more reserved than the 2009 but retains very fine delineation with hints of grapefruit and nectarine. The palate has a very attractive hazelnut and lanolin-tinged entry. It has wonderful definition and a taut citrus finish that is long in the mouth. Try to resist temptation and cellar this for several years. Drink 2012-2020. -NM

Lush and inviting with layers of fig persimmon mango and creamed Jonagold apple fruit all supported by finely beaded acidity that lends definition and length to the finish. More cut and length than just weight in the end... Lush and inviting with layers of fig persimmon mango and creamed Jonagold apple fruit all supported by finely beaded acidity that lends definition and length to the finish. More cut and length than just weight in the end. Drink now through 2017. From South Africa.-J.M.

The attractive and complex nose showcases elegant notes of citrus peach brioche and a hint of white flowers. Extremely well focused on the palate this is precise and balanced with bold flavors of orchard fruit and citrus yet a sense of lightness. Crisp and refreshing with excellent acidity light mineral notes present themselves on the extended finish. Tasted blind this easily passes for a well-made white Burgundy. but it doesn't carry the high-end price tag.
