This is an uncommonly rich wine from a notably tight year. Burgundian in style with balanced, integrated oak and a cultured roundness finishing with a fresh, youthful spritz. Full – not broad – white nectarine and lychee flavours. As Jaya sipped and sketched he focused on thoughts of the agility and surprise of both the wine and its namesake. Fun, attractive, and of the moment – some people, some wines, can make the wild ephemera of youth feel effortless and inexhaustible.
100% Piccadilly Chardonnay, wild yeasts, 15 months in 100% new French oak, only 197 bottle made.
