'Dryer year, less fruit, good quality fruit however. Halcyon Vineyard is on the Si Vintners estate, on the ridge next to a deep thatch of bush. Planted in the late 1970s, now farmed without pesticides and herbicides. The fruit is picked, then a natural ferment kicks off and the fruit is pressed, then transferred to ferment in concrete eggs, before being moved to one new oak and two old oak barrels. Intense perfume of stone fruit, preserved lemon, vanilla, faint cashew nuttiness. Sweet, savoury, citrussy perfume. Has it all. Ultra tangy to taste, thickish in texture but so bright in flavour, then finishes with burst of grapefruity acidity. Richness and a lick of oak play a hand. It’s eclectic Chardonnay, idiosyncratic in it’s lack of precision, let’s say, but great drinking with layers of complexity and interest.' Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
