The near-perfect growing season of 2009 has produced a wine which represents a true single vineyard wine. The wine, a blend of 65% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier, is fascinatingly complex, yet quite simple at the same time. The core of ripe, creamy orchard fruit is very much in the background. The driving characteristic of the wine is one of distinct mineral energy - a flint-like 'terroir' character which suggests a vineyard coming of age and reaching a very particular expression in what was an exceptional vintage.
