"Moderately dark ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the edge. The nose has a firm core with good depth of dark cherry and raspberry fruit with suggestions of plums and liquorice. The fruit is fresh and vibrant, unfolding a very delicate thread of dark and fresh herbs adding interest. Medium-full bodied, the palate has an elegantly concentrated hearth with deep raspberry fruit along with notes of liquorice, spices and plums. This is a fresh, elegantly concentrated, youthful Pinot Noir with cherry, raspberry, liquorice and plum fruit flavours on a fine, grainy-structured palate with plenty of vitality. Aged 10 months, half in French oak and half in tank" Raymond Chan, Jul 2018

"Light, bright, fresh pinot noir with fresh herb, cherry and raspberry flavours. A simple, easy-drinking wine that's slightly on the green side of the flavour spectrum but is supple and appealing" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Jul 2018

"The 2017 vintage (4*) is a single-vineyard red, grown at the mouth of the Waihopai Valley. French oak-aged, it is deep ruby, fresh and full-bodied, with vibrant, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing good concentration, some savoury complexity and the structure to age, A great buy in the sub-$20 range" Michael Cooper, 2018

"A real comforting pinot; the inviting bouquet shows dark plum, spiced cherry, game, toasted almond and subtle dried herb characters, leading to a juicy palate that is supple and silky. The wine delivers lovely fruit purity and elegance, backed by polished tannins. Well composed and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2021" Wine Orbit, 2018

"Sweet rich fruits with supple cherry fruits, a touch of savouriness and a long finish" International Wine Challenge 2019

1 x Delta Marlborough Chardonnay 2018

Awarded 93/100 Points & 5 Stars: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jun 2019

""This is gorgeously styled and expressed on the nose showing ripe peach, rockmelon, vanilla, roasted cashew and subtle brioche characters on the nose, leading to a beautifully weighted palate that is finely textured and creamy. The wine offers delightful fruit purity as well as elegant complexity, finishing long and delectable. At its best: now to 2022" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jun 2019

Golden colour in the glass. Showcasing aromas of ripe peach, apricot and vanilla pod. Juicy pear and ripe peach form a fruity palate, balanced with subtle vanilla spice and caramel on the finish.

These select Clone 15 Chardonnay grapes were sourced from Marlborough's Lower Wairau Valley, predominantly from one select vineyard. The 2018 vintage started with cool spring weather, which extended the length of flowering, leading to open bunches with reduced potential disease pressure during early autumn rains. Lower crop levels led to increased intensity of flavours within the grapes. Ripening steadily throughout the growing period, this fruit was continually monitored until the right balance of flavour and physiological ripeness was attained.

The grapes were harvested both by hand and machine. Once transported to the winery, the grapes were pressed, lightly settled and inoculated with a selected yeast strain. The natural stone fruit flavours were maintained, and secondary characteristics such as sandalwood, caramel and vanilla spice developed with malolactic fermentation, regular lees stirring and maturation in oak, before lighting fining and filtering.

Food Pairing: The 2018 Chardonnay is elegant and concentrated. An ideal wine to enjoy with roast chicken, creamy potatoes and good company.

Vegetarian friendly.
