This was followed by the avoidance of malolactic fermentation. stirring of and maturation on yeast lees.
96 Points from Halliday “Superb green straw. an immaculately crafted wine. with flavours of white peach. melon and fig. it is the texture that is quite outstanding. the creamy mouthfeel tied by a bow of acidity on the finish. you know French oak is plays an integral part. but it ‘s never obvious. 96 Points. ”
