2020 CRU Howell Vineyard Chardonnay
Pale lemon colour. Complex yet quite discrete aromas of ripe nectarine, straw, fresh brioche and cashew nuts prevail. The palate is similarly discrete to start then grows to show the delicious nectarine, ripe citrus, toast and savoury nuttiness of this vineyard, complimented by a lovely creamy texture and seam of fresh lemon zest to finish. Great cellaring potential. Drink now through 2028.

2020 CRU Omahu Syrah
Dense brooding black cherry colour. The nose is intoxicating with aromas of blackberry, cocoa, minerals, iodine and the distinctive sandalwood of fine Gimblett Gravels Syrah. The palate is rich, dense brooding spicey black fruited with a fine thread of blueberry, vanilla and cedar from oak and fruit. The finish is long, fine and gravelly. Cellar through until 2050 if you are patient.

2020 CRU Omahu Cantera 
Dense almost opaque black cherry colour. A complex hedonistic nose of warm stones, black orchard fruit, cassis, cocoa, tobacco, vanilla and cedar. The palate is rich, dense and generous without being sweet or overt, with the flavours reflecting the nose alongside a distinctive fine gravelly texture and twist of steel. Incredible cellaring potential although will always be delicious.
