2016 Marlborough Riesling
Brilliant, pale straw gold.
Lifted, honeyed, with sweet florals: acacia, crocus, pear blossom; lush, but in a fresh and pretty way; not the opulence of summer, but rather the comely profusion of spring; also a mineral character, clean water flowing over stone, characteristic of this vineyard.
Bright and poised, still charm and that floral sweetness, yet with salient phenolics; flirtatious length and a delectable finish. After the adamant and powerful 2015, this is all fluttering lashes, blushes and smiles; a fresh and articulate representation of a balanced and breezy vintage.

2019 Lion's Tooth Chardonnay
Brilliant, pale platinum gold. Youthfully closed at first pour, but opening with intense and diverse aromas, ranging from wet slate minerality, to Granny Smith apples, Meyer lemon, and juicy nectarine, backed by enticing empyreumatics. A chalky mouthfeel and broad shouldered body, work towards creating a synergy to be reckoned with. Power and vivacity are complemented by ongoing length, like an arm reaching out and pulling you back in for more.

Brilliant, pale straw yellow.

A supple and generous roundness which dances across palate. This 2018 Field of Fire is a standout example of power and intensity complemented by incredible poise and a lively, playful length. Pure eruption from soil and season.
