Awarded 93/100 Points: Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier

"A powerful bouquet of Chardonnay packed with aromas of oak and peach, wood smoke and nectarine, baked lemon and vanilla. Equally powerful on the palate with flavours to match the nose, full-bodied creaminess, medium acidity and lengthy spicy finish. Although the wine finished dry the texture, fruit core and vanilla wood flavours suggest a little sweetness. Drink now and through 2024" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier

Sourced from vineyards in Hawke’s Bay, this is a rich, barrel fermented Chardonnay with the accent on complexity and fruit weight. Grilled stonefruit, hazelnut and citrus aromas combine with hints of toasty cedar, leading to a silky and long finish.

"A magnificent new offering from their home vineyard; this is superbly fruited and complex on the nose showing nectarine, mango, lemon peel, cedar and vanilla characters. The palate delivers terrific fruit intensity and fleshy mouthfeel, wonderfully complemented by creamy texture and refreshing acidity. The wine is multi-layered and mouthfilling with gorgeous fruit flavours and stylish oak infusion. At its best: now to 2022" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jul 2018

"Soft, rich and creamy chardonnay with ginger, apricot, peach and spicy oak. Silken-textured wine, with an impeccable balance of subtle sweetness and fruity acidity. A classy wine with a moderately lengthy finish" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Jun 2018

"Bright, pale, lemon-hued gold colour, lighter edged. The nose is very fresh and bright with vibrantly aromatic aromas of yellow stonefruits and citrus fruit, unfolding lifted oak vanillins and nutty detail, with some creamy barrel-ferment elements. The nose is fine and refreshing in expression. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a refined and elegantly concentrated core with tightly bound flavours of citrus fruit and yellow stonefruits, along with subtle nutty and creamy barrel-ferment density. The fruit vibrancy is enhanced by fragrant, lifted oak. The mouthfeel is poised with fresh acidity balancing the fruit depth. This has freshness and vitality, and carries to a taut, sustained finish of citrus fruits, nuts and oak. This is a youthfully fresh and finely elegantly concentrated Chardonnay with stonefruit and citrus fruit, along with subtle nutty oak on a palate with vitality. Match with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 4-5 years" Raymond Chan, Jun 2018

You will see aromas of melon, stonefruit, biscuit and toasty oak. The palate is rich and textural, with creamy complexity and a long, elegant finish. Whilst delicious now, this wine will continue to develop in the bottle over the next decade.
