Block 2 at Colmar Estate contains three clones (genetic variants) of chardonnay but the heart of this wine is the renowned 95 clone, which was hand-picked in pristine condition in the excellent 2016 vintage. After vinification the wine was matured in French oak puncheons, some new and some older for 10 months. Wine writer Huon Hooke’s review (10/1/18) follows:
Medium to light yellow hue, with a spicy, extroverted bouquet, which leads into a rich palate. Soft, rounded, almost opulent, yet elegant and restrained as well. Liberal use of oak; a smidgin of sweetness. A classy wine, deliciously flavoured and rewarding to drink. 93 points
