Bright and bracing, with honeycomb, white peach, chamomile and mineral notes that race through the finish. Bony, but with lots of fruit. What Chenin does best. Drink now through 2006. 112 cases imported. —James Molesworth

May. 12, 2005: TUCK'S RIDGE Chardonnay Mornington Peninsula 2002 (91 points, $22)

May. 11, 2005: RUST EN VREDE Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch 2001 (89 points, $24)
