90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2011

Straw-gold. Intriguing nose combines orange, pineapple, minerals and buttery vanilla. Ripe, concentrated, vibrant flavors of orchard fruits, spices and minerals are well delineated by lively acidity. Impressively horizontal on the long, clean finish. Made from biodynamically grown grapes, it is a less rich and oaky style of chardonnay compared to this producer's famous Lowengang bottling. This wine spent six months on its lees; made from certified biodynamically grown fruit from vines that range from 10 to 30 years of age, this is a single-vineyard bottling (the Gaun vineyard is located within the Lowengang estate.)
