(94-95) A lovely, dense white with pretty phenolic tension and dried-apple and peach character. Medium to full body. Phenolics give this tension.

Rounded, nicely textured, yet still fresh and vibrant on the palate, it has terrific purity, integrated acidity, and a clean, dry finish. collapse

Floral, fresh and fruity with zesty lemons, pomelo and a drizzle of orange honey, this will drink well on release.

They have still captured a wonderfully bright and fresh feel though, with apricot richness running through the palate. It has the grip and sense of depth and concentration that's so much a signature of the whites in the portfolio. It was always going to be tough to follow the brilliant 2017 here, but this is a succulent and enjoyable wine. 45hl/ha yields for the whites this year.

It comes bounding out of the glass with bold notions of warm pineapple, guava and peach juice plus hints of lanolin, honeysuckle, lime cordial and nutmeg. Medium to full-bodied with a lovely oily texture, it fills the mouth with exotic fruit, lifted by just enough freshness and culminating in a long, pineapple-laced finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown collapse
