Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
​"This full, enticing example of Chardonnay features white stone-fruit, crab apple and rock-melon aromas vying for attention over the mouth-watering hint of grapefruit zest. All of these lifted fruit characters flow through to the palate, melting into the more savoury, flinty, toasted-brioche notes. The finish is long, tight and salivating which, together with its renowned minerality."
5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, September 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"Tight, elegant wine with mineral, matchstick, grapefruit and nutty yeast lees characters. Subtle wine with impressive underlying power. Moderately concentrated with potential for bottle development."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"This elegantly expressed chardonnay shows attractive aromas of white stone fruit, rockmelon, almond and oatmeal characters with a touch of vanilla complexity. The palate is finely textured and beautifully flowing, with excellent mid palate weight, leading to an impressively sustained finish. Stylish and refined. At its best: now to 2020."
5 Stars & 19/20 Raymond Chan, October 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"Bright straw-yellow colour with light green-gold hues, paler on the rim. The nose is very fresh and tight, quite elegantly presented with good intensity of white stonefruits and subtle notes of citrus fruits entwined with flinty and minerally lees and balanced, nutty oak elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate is taut, refined and tightly concentrated with a core of harmoniously melded flavours of white and yellow stonefruits, citrus fruits and complexing flint, mineral and nutty detail. The palate is bright, energetic and vibrant with a refined, textural line and fresh, lacy acidity enlivening the mouthfeel. The wine carries to a long, lingering and elegantly concentrated finish of stonefruit and flinty lees. This is a tightly bound, elegantly concentrated and harmoniously detailed Chardonnay with stonefruit, flint and nutty flavours. Serve with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 5 years. Clone 15 and 6 fruit from the ‘Petrie’ vineyard, East Taratahi, hand-picked and WBP, indigenous yeast barrel-fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months on lees in 18% new barriques and puncheons with 30% MLF."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"This single-vineyard wine is grown at East Taratahi, south of Masterton, in the Wairarapa. Based on mature vines (over 20 years old), it is hand-picked and fermented and lees-aged in French oak casks. Lemon-hued, the youthful 2015 vintage is mouthfilling, with strong, vibrant, grapefruit and peach flavours, biscuity and buttery notes adding complexity, fresh acidity and a finely poised finish. Best drinking mid-2017+."
