"Mendoza clone grapes are hand-picked, pressed directly into French puncheons for a wild ferment and maturation (without mlf) for 10 months. It is an exquisitely balanced wine, grapefruit and almond kernel to the fore, the finish of great length. 97 points" - James Halliday


Tasting Notes


Press Note:

The Block 6 Chardonnay is youthfully muted with nuances of green mango, yuzu zest and orange blossoms plus touches of aniseed and crushed stones. Very tart, tight-knit and restrained at this stage, it gives generous citrus flavors with minerally accents and wonderful persistence. Needs time. Drink 2016-2022. 93+ - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, eRobertParker "Nicely worked and concentrated aromas make the first impression, citrusy grapefruit and sulphides, flinty, some stone fruits too, really nicely treated in terms of the oak regime, complex and modern. The palate's brisk in terms of acidity, crisp and punchy flavours are in the melon and peach spectrum with a good dose of citrus, it's wound right back, really tight. Great balance, drive and focus, restrained and yet powerful. Drink now." 93 pts JamesSuckling.com
