The Real Review, Huon Hooke
92 / 100
The bouquet is reserved and straw-like, with dusty oak undertones and attractive lemon and grapefruit citrus fruits. The pungency of the fruit does much of the talking. In the mouth, it's soft and open at the front of the mouth but fades slightly towards the back. Powerful lemon and grapefruit flavours outgun the oak. The finish is firm with a trace of grip. Easy to like this.

Hand picked and gently whole bunch pressed. Fermented in Burgundy barriques and aged on lees for 10 months, in 30% new well integrated oak. Partial malolactic fermentation.
This is a delicate and elegant Chardonnay coming out of our 3rd vintage on the Forest Grove property.
