Huon Hooke “Light, bright, slaty-yellow colour with a dusty, earthy, dried herb aroma, young and undeveloped. Stony mineral overtones, lemon essence emerging with time in the glass. The palate is tense and reserved and quite firm across the middle. It's nervy, tense and tight. A good wine but a little one-dimensional compared to some of its brethren. More time needed? Drink 2020–2028”

26 MAY 2020  92/100 ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Once again there is just enough wood influence present to merit mentioning on the overtly floral-suffused nose of pear, apple and citrus aromas. The medium weight, intense and quite rich medium-bodied flavors flash excellent complexity on the bone dry and very tightly wound finish. This well-made if restrained effort will need at least a few years of repose before it will be approachable. 90-92  Sweet spot Outstanding
