Stoney, minerally nose with a touch of toast. Dry, good vibrant acidity that support the palate. Minerally and stony showing no sign of age yet. Chalk dry finish. A wine for the long haul. This wine has not been released yet (27/12/21) so price is a rough guide.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
