"This has the same back label fruit description of white grapefruit and nectarine as its Artus Chardonnay sibling, but that is where the similarity ends. This is all about purity and finesse, the fruit flavours strung on a necklace of diamonds, oak incidental."
96 Points - James Halliday - Halliday Wine Companion
"From Margaret River’s famous Gingin clone of chardonnay, the Floris has spent ten months in French Allier and Vosges oak barriques; one-third in new, with a small portion going through malolactic fermentation to soften the grape’s maritime climate acidity. The 2021 Floris is saline sea spray over notes of grapefruit zest, just-picked nectarine and lightly toasted hazelnut oak. The palate is alive with energy and the gorgeous purity of its savoury fruit versus balanced acidity with the lightest tannin grip; a tightrope of taut minerality and savoury oak framing the underlining zing. Drink now to 2030."
