    (made from a 1.5-acre block of ten-year-old vines; 80% fermented in a vertical foudre, the rest in stainless steel and a couple of barriques, then aged for 10 months): Medium lemon-yellow color. Pungent aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest and minerals; still a hint of reduction, perhaps owing to the use of the vertical foudre. Then ripe and rich but firm in the mouth, with lovely floral lift; turned creamier with air, with the floral element growing stronger. Finishes with good bite. Larkmead sold off the fruit from the other block that normally goes into this wine, as it ripened too quickly and did not show enough flavor development.

    fantastic SB. Glass filling aromas of white flowers, gooseberry, and stone fruits. Not new Zealand in style, good acidity but not mouthwatering.
