The 2012 Dry White No. 1 has a rather subdued nose, offering subtle notes of lemongrass, fresh pears, white peaches and baking bread with a hint of ginger. Light-bodied and crisp in the mouth, it is a little on the lean side yet offers appealing restrained citrus fruit and yeasty notes with medium-long persistence.

It’s a serious feeling chardonnay of medium weight, full intensity, curls of smoke and creamy barrel work, crisp underlying acidity. Mellow and mouthwatering stone fruits, cashew butter, fine chalky-flinty minerality and sheets of crisp acidity. It’s a wine that takes its time to spread through the palate, but retains vitality, persistence and structure. In essence, it’s a quietly powerful chardonnay of grace.
