"A gorgeous chardonnay; the instantly appealing bouquet shows ripe stone fruit, mango, vanilla and cedar characters. The palate is equally satisfying with fabulous fruit weight and intensity, wonderfully enhanced by silky texture and stylish oak infusion. The wine is immediate and generous, and offers terrific value. At its best: now to 2019." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2017

An elegant Chardonnay with aromas of white peach, rockmelon and toasted hazelnut. The palate is rich and savoury with stone fruit flavours, and a hint of crème brulee. An attractive easy-drinking style with a long, lingering finish. Fruit for this wine was harvested from a select number of Marlborough vineyards. The wine is partially fermented in seasoned oak and these nutty oak notes support the bright fruit flavours.

Match with creamy chicken casserole or rich seafood chowder over the next 3-4+ years from vintage date.

Neill - 28/01/2018

If you like Dashwood Chardonnay this is similar. I think Dashwood is a little more rich tasting and possibly better value.

Mark - 02/04/2019

C
easy drinking - not a great Chardonnay but certainly worth going to after you've finished the excellent one and you want to finish your night off with another glass or 2. It's very good value for it's pricing. Cheers!

Craig - 01/04/2019

not quite up to the expected standard compared to other vintages

Colin - 01/04/2019

A
Not as good as previous years. We probably would have rated previous years at 4 stars
