White Lab Selection
1 bottle 2011 G1-10 Chardonnay
94 POINTS JAMES HALLIDAY
Bright and fresh, pale colour with a complex nose of lemon zest, lifted stone fruit, citrus flowers, loads of spice and gentle biscuit oak. Precise palate of citrus and white peach, intense and balanced with texture and acidity with some developed lees complexity. A wine that is really shining with seven years in the bottle, drinking beautifully now, but could still develop for up to 3 more years.
2 bottles 2011 Fume Sauvignon Blanc
93 POINTS JAMES HALLIDAY
Medium to full bodied, with a sweet juicy and expansive front palate. Serious, ripe and nutty structural
tannins fill out the middle and a hints of black coffee, then a twist of blood-orange acidity give a fresh, yet savoury finish. Will happily reward further cellaring to 2020, perhaps beyond.
1 bottle 2013 G1-10 Chardonnay
95 POINTS JAMES hALLIDAY
Fleshier and riper style than 2011, loads of white peach, honeysuckle and supportive tropical notes. Palate has some verve and acid line, but also complex battonage characters and weight of fruit in support. The softness of fruit suggests this wine is ready to be consumed and would certainly suit an array of seafood coming into the summer months.
2 bottles 2016 Bookends Fume Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
95 POINTS JAMES HALLIDAY
Cleansing and fresh, flavoursome citrus fruit with edgy, mineral elements. Barrel fermented and maturation in oak adds an intrinsic layer of texture and mouthfeel which provides depth and intrigue.. This wine will continue to evovle over the next 2-3 years.
