No surprises, just spot on. Candied lemon, green apple, browned butter, wooly, great acid

There are times when the only thing that will do the trick is an old-school Chenin. And boy was this on target. Positively crackling with acidity, citrus pith and pear, quince and crushed quartz all vibrating with energy in the mouth. You’d never guess this was a 9 year-old wine. Fresh as a daisy and utterly compelling.

Far showier than any vintage Collier tasted previously. Hopefully, the new oak integrates.

Great acidity and Chenin character, although not the most harmonious vintage for this wine.

Minerals, ripe red apples and anjou pears, white tea, hint of blanched almonds. Round, textured and complex. Stunning.
